"It can be difficult to attract and especially retain female students in STEM fields. Students may not see clear career paths, especially outside of academia, or may feel intimidated choosing fields that are dominated by men."
"Increasing opportunities for women in these fields is an important step towards realizing greater economic success and equality for women across the board."
“One of the things that I really strongly believe in is that we need to have more girls interested in math, science, and engineering. We’ve got half the population that is way underrepresented in those fields and that means that we’ve got a whole bunch of talent…not being encouraged the way they need to.”
