21 Feb 2014 Go Girl! Engineering a bright future for today’s girls
Women constitute 48 percent of the U.S. workforce but hold just 24 percent of the U.S. jobs in STEM. Even worse, only 1 out of every 10 STEM professionals is a minority woman. Women make up only 10 percent of U.S. engineers. We must change this. Today’s girls are our future engineers – they naturally possess the creativity and analytical and communication skills that are the signature traits of an engineer. We must inspire them to dream big, reach higher, and pursue their passions. Join Project Lead The Way in introducing girls to the exciting career of engineering!
