Abstract

STEM fields lead to innovation and economic growth. More than 6.6 million STEM jobs need to be filled by 2022, outpacing non-STEM job growth by 6%. In order to fully reach that potential and for the U.S. economy to continue to be competitive, women are needed in both STEM fields of study and professions.

Keywords: STEM, women, growth, jobs, economy, competitive, innovation
