prospectives of women in STEM

What’s clear to me is that women are a major solution
to the STEM workforce deficiency. Alka Dhillon is right
when she says, “Women and Minorities are important to
STEM careers because more women are naturally matriculating by exponential numbers into the workforce
every minute.” Mina Stewart of Verizon also summarizes
the solution, adding “If women and members of other
traditionally underrepresented groups joined the STEM
workforce in proportion to their representation in the
overall labor force, the shortage of STEM professionals
would disappear.” Mina finds evidence of this in numbers from the Department of Labor showing that “from
the 20 fastest growing occupations projected for 2014,
15 of them require significant mathematics or science
preparation.”
