Though the demand for jobs related to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) has increased significantly in recent years, men still continue to dominate these fields creating a STEM Gender Gap. Across the world, women make up less than a third (29.3%) of those employed in scientific research and development related fields. In addition, women who do choose to work in STEM fields are more likely to leave or choose to not continue their education in that field compared to their male counterparts.Throughout middle school both male and female students take prestigious science and math courses and even make similar scores. However, in high school we see this gap widen as fewer young girls choose to participate in STEM related courses. Many researchers believe that this trend could be caused by gender stereotypes and society’s expectations surrounding what job roles women can fill. In addition, the few women that do decide to enter the STEM workforce face descrimination, are paid less than male co-workers, feel isolated due to the lack of female coworkers, mentors, and role models, and feel like that their contributions are ignored.
