How to Close the Gender Gap for Women in Stem

February 8, 2018

There's a huge gender gap in the technology sector. AT&T's Regional President for the North East, Marissa Shorenstein, explains how AT&T is working to close this gap for women in this industry.

"We're investing in stem education to ensure there is a pipeline of young women and diverse talent coming into organizations like AT&T," says Shorenstein who is on the board of Girls Who Code. Shorenstein says its critical to give women exposure and confidence.

Women held only 24 percent of STEM jobs in 2015, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce. Women make up 32 percent of AT&T's total U.S. workforce.
