Although women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers earn nearly 33 percent more than those in non-STEM careers do, women are significantly underrepresented in STEM fields.
In this webinar, designed for those on the front lines of preparing women for their careers, you will learn about available resources, current research, and specific strategies you can use to help women open doors to careers in STEM fields.
Speakers include representatives from the Women’s Bureau, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Society of Women Engineers, and the National Institute for Women in the Trades, Technology, & Science, as well as AAUW Senior Researcher Andresse St. Rose. A live Q&A session will follow. We hope you can join us for this important discussion.

With increased attention and improved outreach to women students, the nation’s community colleges can build on their legacy of providing educational opportunity to all.
Even though AAUW analysis shows that STEM careers can provide women with a greater degree of economic security than many other fields, there is still a gender pay gap in STEM fields.
