By the time students reach college, women are significantly underrepresented in STEM majors— for instance, only around 21% of engineering majors are women and only around 19% of computer and information science majors are women. Girls have fewer role models to inspire their interest in S.T.E.A.M./S.T.E.M. fields, seeing limited examples of female scientists and engineers in books, media and popular culture. There are even fewer role models of Black women in math and science. Let’s change the statistics! Visit with some great female professionals in various S.T.E.A.M./S.T.E.M. fields and let’s make a difference in tomorrow’s workforce.
