In an age shaped by technological advancement, it is alarming to see that girls are still vastly underrepresented in STEM subjects. U.S. data shows that 74 percent of middle school girls show an interest in STEM subjects and careers, yet only 0.4 percent choose to pursue these options in college. What is creating this disconnect between girls and STEM? One key element is the scarcity of relatable female role models in STEM fields, meaning that most girls likely lack inspiration and motivation to pursue these options.
In this episode of the Digital Dish, host Jeanne Cuff talks to Madelyn Nelson, a platform software engineer at Sprout Social and instructor for the non-profit organization Girls Who Code. Listen in as they discuss the importance of improving access to STEM education for girls and women as a key part of closing the gender gap in technology. Nelson shares insights from her experience of teaching technology and offers advice to women who are thinking of getting involved but may be reluctant to take the leap.
Co-hosts Lois Coatney and Julie Fernandez join the discussion on empowering girls and women to embrace and explore careers in technology.
