She-Geeks: Is This The Era of Women in STEM?

Posted on December 2, 2013. Filed under: Career Management, Job Market Trends, Women in IT | Tags: , , |

A lot has been made in recent years about the shortage of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (otherwise known as “STEM”) fields. There seems be a great deal of conjecture on why more women are not taking up these fields, but according to this infographic from TechSchool.com, that might be changing as females could be the answer to helping to stem the talent shortage across STEM fields. According to recent reports, 45% of the MIT student body is female, showing a closing of the gender gap in this arena.

Tell Us What You Think

Do you think efforts by colleges and universities as well as by other groups like the Girl Scouts to encourage more females to take up STEM careers will have a significant impact on the job market in the years to come? Feel free to leave your comments here.
