Let Us Recognize & Celebrate Girls!

Wednesday, October 21, 2015

"Currently, 36 percent of high school students within the United States are not ready for college-level sciences. Misha Malyshev, CEO of Teza Technologies works with nonprofits to curb that number. International Day of the Girl is a great time to celebrate the women in this field, and every field, and recognize the opportunities allowed to girls."

I was recently reached out to by Teza Technologies about a campaign they are running to celebrate the International Day of the Girl. This is a day to celebrate and highlight opportunities available for girls across the globe.

They shared with me the above graphic that highlights the in-balance of females in the STEM;(Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) workforce. The numbers show that females are lagging behind in these industries. But as Beyonce says, "Girls run the world!" If you are woman, whatever age, and are interested in these industries, work towards it! Who says that only men can do these jobs? I'll wait...

So in celebration of th International Day of the Girl, lets congratulate the women training and working in STEM. They need to know that their work is not being taken for granted.
