As we beat the drum about the vital role of STEM in the 21st Century economy and the highest quality jobs of the future, the importance of gender – specifically of encouraging more girls to move into STEM fields – cannot be overstated. Women with STEM jobs earn nearly one third more than their counterparts. Yet women remain vastly underrepresented in the STEM workforce as well as among STEM degree holders — despite making up nearly half of the U.S. workforce and half of the college-educated workforce. It is imperative we seize this opportunity and expand STEM employment in the United States, for a variety of compelling reasons not the least of which is improving our nation’s competitiveness.
