Hello World Pulse community, I have a simple resource I want to share with all. It is a US based coalition called STEM. Its focus is to increase education in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Its mission is general, but one of their focuses is on encouraging women to enter these fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. It emphasizes the inequality of women in these fields, even in developed nations, and discusses and supports ways to change this. They have a statistic on their opening web page: Only 31% of STEM degrees are awarded to women. It is up to us, as women, to change that equation.
The webpage is: http://www.stemedcoalition.org
An example of one young girl, who, with encourgement and resources from STEM and the internet, is now on her way to becoming an engineer! http://techcrunch.com/2014/05/17/for-aspiring-female-engineers-a-square-...
