innovative capacity and global competitiveness. Yet women are vastly underrepresented in
STEM jobs and among STEM degree holders despite making up nearly half of the U.S. workforce
and half of the college-educated workforce. That leaves an untapped opportunity to expand
STEM employment in the United States, even as there is wide agreement that the nation must do
more to improve its competitiveness.
