We hope that the stories of these, and many more, women in STEM can inspire others as they think
about the future. Only 24% of the STEM workforce is female, an alarming
gap as over 51% of the workforce overall is female. We can and should
share our own STEM stories to help engage others and offer our voices on
how our STEM careers have impacted us.
