Great Potential is Not Being Realized
Today’s economy and tomorrow’s wellbeing depend on innovations in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, the four fields collectively known as STEM. Despite women accounting for more than half of the college educated workforce, a troubling gender gap persists in STEM careers. Women, especially women of color, make up a small share of scientists and engineers. Of 100 female students working toward a bachelor’s degree, only three will work in a STEM job 10 years after graduation.
The American Heart Association and STEM
Fortune 500 companies, start-ups and moms everywhere know what we know: Setting a new generation of female scientists, doctors, inventors and changemakers is a critical step in securing their future, as well as our own.
That’s why the American Heart Association is working to close the gender gap in STEM through an educational program called STEM Goes Red. The program draws from the Association’s strong legacy of science, education and discovery to help propel young women into rewarding careers in STEM.
STEM Goes Red brings interesting careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics to life for young women by giving them access to leading employers and experts and an insider look at what they do. STEM Goes Red attendees will gain first-hand experience, connect with inspiring professionals, learn about jobs they never knew they could have, and walk away feeling like a whole new world of STEM has been revealed—a world in which they can truly love what they do and make a tremendous impact.
Creating Change Together
With support from local communities, employers and schools, STEM Goes Red helps the brilliant, female leaders of tomorrow uncover their potential and find their path today.
We must develop a robust pipeline of innovators who will develop the research, technology and innovations that will eliminate heart disease and ensure health equity in our communities.
