STEM workforce no more diverse than 14 years ago
U.S. News & World Report
Despite a national focus on directing more students toward science, technology, engineering and math fields — particularly women and minorities — the STEM workforce is no more diverse now than in 2001, according to data from Change the Equation. The group, a coalition of Fortune 500 companies focused on increasing STEM education, recently hosted a panel discussion on the stagnant nature of STEM diversity and what needs to be done to better target women and minority students who may represent overlooked talent in schools nationwide.

Nature
Scientists think that they should actively participate in public debates about science and technology — but many have misgivings about doing so, according to a survey of nearly 4,000 U.S. researchers.

How companies can encourage minority populations to get into STEM fields
Forbes
Last year, the NSF shared that "women, African-Americans, Latinos, Native Americans and individuals with disabilities make up 70 percent of the nation's population and their underrepresentation in computer science represents a loss of talent and creativity for our nation."
