There is significant research exploring the reasons why women are underrepresented in STEM-related fields, why businesses should care about diversity in the workforce, and how we can overcome barriers to achieve a critical mass of women working in STEM-related fields.
Impact and Reach
Through the online resources and virtual offerings, there is unlimited possibilities for engagement with girls, community leaders and teachers to become involved with STEMforGIRLS.
