STEM Girls

Adventures in Exploring Exciting Career Possibilities
Young women often have a difficult time envisioning themselves in STEM careers because women are drastically under-represented in those fields, particularly in engineering and computer science, Martin says. According to the Economics and Statistics Administration (2011), although 47 percent of the overall workforce and 60 percent of college graduates are women, they hold fewer than 25 percent of STEM jobs. And, if women are under-represented in STEM fields, women of color are even more underrepresented, Martin notes. She hopes The STEM Girls program, with its diverse following (50 percent of participants are young women of color), will inspire more young women of color to pursue STEM careers.
