“It’s no secret that it’s hard to get high school girls to even take STEM subjects, especially those “harder” courses that are prerequisites for STEM programs at universities. Even women who take the prerequisites for college STEM majors don’t often choose to graduate with STEM degrees. Those that do, and land a STEM job, often drop out of the field.
At least one organization in New Jersey is working to reverse this trend. Million Women Mentors –New Jersey held a summit on Sept. 30, at Cisco in Iselin, to highlight how mentoring can help women.”
