Entergy was the presenting sponsor of the American Heart Association’s 2022 STEM Goes Red event on March 24 at Xavier University of Louisiana in New Orleans. The event encourages young women to explore careers in science, technology, engineering and math. Fifty high school girls assembled for the first in-person event since 2020, engaging in a daylong event of hands-on STEM activities and mentorship. The day kicked off with a talk by Taiwan Brown, vice-president, diversity and workforce strategies, on increase diversity in STEM fields for women.
Thank you to all the women who took chances and paved the way so we could forge our own paths today. This past Women’s History Month, we honored women in science by continuing our commitment to making STEM more accessible to girls and other underrepresented groups.
"Every day at Biogen we work to empower women. By bringing people together to listen, learn and share, March and beyond, we can continue to make meaningful progress toward equity," said Alisha Alaimo, President of Biogen, US Organization.
Why strong STEM opportunities for women are important during Women’s History Month and every month
The gender gap that exists in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields has been prominent for years. Girls and women are often steered away from science and math throughout their education, limiting their opportunities to pursue a career in these fields as an adult. With only about 28% of women in the STEM workforce, and men greatly outnumbering women in STEM fields in college, many women are missing the opportunity to build a career in innovative and high-paying jobs like scientific research and engineering.
Women are behind some of the most groundbreaking discoveries in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), from everyday items like coffee filters to life-saving inventions like vaccines.1 However, while women fill almost 50 percent of the workforce, they only make up 27 percent of the people in STEM fields.2 This number represents the “STEM gap,” as more than half of girls count themselves out of STEM careers by the time they reach college due to lack of mentorship and role models3, and the belief that jobs in STEM are not ‘for them.’
