How New York City is preparing girls for our STEM-focused future
from New York Daily News
As a mother and a grandmother — and as women who’ve strived for success in the business and education worlds — we want our girls and young women to go out into the world knowing they can do anything. In today's technology-driven economy, an important part of that is giving them the skills, support, and confidence to pursue education and careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. When we look at today's young women, we see the next generation of software developers and electrical engineers. The challenge is starting early: 74 percent of middle-school girls express interest in STEM subjects, but only 0.4 percent of girls end up pursuing a college major in computer science.
