What We Believe
We believe that empowering girls and young women to pursue STEM careers begins in the classroom, and this age is an impressionable time in life recognized as a turning point.
While women constitute almost 50% of the labor market, there are only 28% of women in STEM fields as opposed to 72% of men.
Out of all female doctorate graduates in the fields of science and engineering, 86% are white or Asian. Fewer than 4% are Latinas, and less than 3% are black. The same can be observed in the job market as well. Only 1 out of 20 employed scientists and engineers are black women or Latinas.
