ENA Women in STEM Roles
I suppose the best place to start would be defining STEM: science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The workforce comprised of these fields of study is, for obvious reasons in our industrialized and information-centered age, “crucial to America’s innovative capacity and global competitiveness.” Nearly everyone would agree that Americans going into STEM jobs is a good thing. The bad thing is that, statically, women are the minority in these roles by a large margin.
Despite women being equally represented in the entirety of the American workforce, they comprise less than 25 percent of jobs in STEM positions. Similarly, the number of women who receive STEM undergraduate degrees is also much lower than men.
Many people are studying why this is, and much concentration is being placed on the subject with hopes that one day the STEM workforce will also be an equally represented one. I bring this up for two reasons: 1) to call attention to an issue that many are unaware exists, and 2) to highlight the women in STEM roles at ENA. Peruse the below list and join me in recognizing these outstanding ladies because, without them, ENA would certainly not be the same and not nearly as successful. From our products to customer service to the inner workings of the business, they have an impact on what we do and how we do it, and ENA is certainly happy to have the talents and dedication of each and every one of them. It is also our hope that their success stories will inspire generations of women to come to pursue roles in STEM fields.
