Skills gained through subjects like science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) can impact the world around us, and therefore, are some of the most desirable in the present and future markets. Despite the fact that more women than men are graduating from college, fewer girls are seeking careers in STEM fields.
This month, many organizations in the United States and abroad are celebrating women working in, and making a difference in STEM-related fields. STEM is an acronym that stands for science, technology, engineering, and math. The skills gained through these subjects are desirable across industries and necessary to compete in today's workforce and careers of the future.
