America’s STEM workforce is crucial for generating new ideas and providing the flexibility and critical thinking required in the modern economy. Although women continue to make gains across the broader economy, they remain underrepresented in STEM jobs. Data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS) reveals that only 24% of the STEM workforce is comprised of women, with little improvement in the past 8 years. Today’s competitive job market can be difficult, especially for women who are trying to break into traditionally male-dominated career fields such as finance, engineering and technology. Through dialogue at Courage, Confidence and Character, we will talk about how Girl Scouts is tackling the issue, and inspire you to overcome challenges, solve problems, and advance in your field. Join us for a fun Tuesday night out—the event is open to everyone—all ages, genders and non-Girl Scouts!
Meet our speaker:
