Episode Description

Women’s participation in the tech sector is one gender gap that is unfortunately wide and growing.The gender gap in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) has widened since the 1980’s, when 37% of all computer science graduates in the U.S. were women. Today, that number is a mere 18%. By 2020, Girls Who Code estimates there will be 1.4 million computing related jobs in the US but women will likely only fill 3% of them. To change the trajectory of these statistics, there is much more work to be done. Women are needed, now more than ever, in the development of science & tech development. You can be that power woman in tech!! Today, our discussion is with three powerful women in wearables and health technology. Maggie Robb, Casey Wilson and I talk about careers in science and technology. It is our goal to inspire more women to participate in technology and enable a lifelong career.
