Create STEM Gateways Today

The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that by 2020, over 9.2 million jobs will be in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. Approximately 4.6 million of those jobs will be in computing or information technology. The high demand for the services provided by this industry has created a large number of fast-growing and high-paying IT jobs but fail include a substantial number of women.

That’s why we need your help to take action to create gateways and broaden opportunities for women and minorities in STEM.

Take action and urge your Members of Congress to co-sponsor the STEM Gateways Act today!
