The bad news is that women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields are underrepresented in Utah more so than in other states. The good new is that the state government is actively trying to change that! They have launched a new website (www.utahwomenandeducation.org) to encourage women to pursue and obtain college degrees.
This effort is targeting young women interested in STEM and non-STEM fields.
Question for our Utah members: Do you feel more needs to be done to encourage women to obtain college degrees, and do you think this will help? All comments and thoughts are appreciated!
