To create learning success stories, one student at a time
Why this is
In middle school, 74% of girls express interest in STEM, but when choosing a college major, just 0.4% of high school girls select computer science.
While 57% of bachelor’s degrees are earned by women, just 12% of computer science degrees are awarded to women.
Women today represent 18% of all computer science graduates. In 1984, they represented 37%.
Women make up half of the U.S. workforce, but hold just 25% of the jobs in technical or computing fields.
The U.S. Department of Labor projects that by 2020, there will be 1.4 million computer specialist job openings. Yet U.S. universities are expected produce only enough qualified graduates to fill 29% of these jobs.
