Women of color nurture minority girls' interest in STEM
from Long Island Newsday
Despite decades of advancement in various careers, women represent only a small fraction of those in STEM fields, and women of color an even smaller fraction. Amid a growing national effort to bring more women and minorities into STEM careers, women of color on Long Island are taking it upon themselves to educate and mentor young girls of color to pursue these subjects. The uneven divide along racial and gender lines runs through all STEM areas but is most acute in engineering, statistics show.
