The science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students of today are tomorrow’s scientists. They’re the future disease curers, bridge builders, space explorers, and in many STEM fields, they’re nearly half women. In the past decade, the number of degrees that women earned at all levels has steadily increased, which will help close the STEM gap in America's workforce. Women still have fields where they make up a small minority, but supporting women in these fields is one way to insure a steady pipeline of bright scientists to lead the future of American competitiveness and innovation. Check out our latest infographic that shows how STEM fields stack up in overall growth, and how they break down between men and women.
