Within our Reach to Advance Women

Standard

If you are reading this post, you already know the facts. All you need to remember are two important facts:

1. There is a shortage of women and minorities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

2. Women and minorities face obstacles in reaching their full potential in the workplace.

For more than a decade, countless surveys, studies, and reports from legislators, policy institutes, professional associations, national commissions and councils reach the same conclusion (refer to the two statements above). It would be more productive to act on the recommendations of  prior reports and findings than commission more studies to arrive at the same conclusion! The need of the hour is action, not another report. What are some things we can do that won’t cost money and yet will have a positive impact? Please share your innovative ideas to increase women and minorities in STEM and to create a positive and empowering workplace for women that won’t cost money.
