The STEAM Gap
It’s no secret that there is a problem with gender inequality, both in career opportunities and in pay. CT is working to help boost young women by providing resources that promote STEAM education.
Women are missing in STEAM careers. According to the National Girls Collaborative Project, women make up just 34% of the STEAM workforce.
Women of color have even fewer opportunities and represent less than 10% of the STEM workforce.
STEAM careers are the careers of the future. According to Pew Research Center, STEM workers can earn two-thirds more than other fields.
Women deserve access to the same high-paying jobs as men. It’s up to us all to collectively help young women and girls in Connecticut bridge the gap.
