Best Colleges.com offers Women and Careers STEM series to the Elsberry community

8/21/2019

Best Colleges.com is a trusted education advisor that hosts free college planning, financial aid and career resources to help students get the most from their education and prepare for life after college.  They would like to share their Women and Careers in STEM (Science,Technology, Engineering & Math) series with the Elsberry community.  
Only 1 in 4 individuals working in computer and mathematical workforce are female. Additionally, only 1 in 6 people working in architecture and engineering occupations are women. As the numbers prove, there is still underrepresentation of women in the science, technology, engineering, and math workforce. 
 
In an effort to make information focused on STEM education and careers more accessible to women, we at BestColleges.com have curated a Women and Careers in STEM series for those considering the field. Included are degree overviews, job boards, and perspectives from female professionals already in the industry. Take a look here:
