While job market demand for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) talent continues to grow, women and minorities remain underrepresented in STEM fields. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, women hold less than 24 percent of U.S.-based positions in STEM fields. The disparity is even greater for women of color
