HOUSTON, September 7, 2017 /3BL Media/ - CITGO Petroleum Corporation is providing 15 high school graduates from Spring Branch Independent School District (ISD) with scholarships that will help them pursue degrees in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) at four-year accredited universities. CITGO also awarded STEM scholarships to Alief and Houston ISD graduates this spring to help foster academic excellence in STEM among Houston-area students.
For students growing up in rural communities, access to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs can be limited. Poor retention of teachers and lack of technology are just two factors that often times leave rural schools unable to provide the same type of STEM education that students in urban or suburban districts receive.
Data from more than 200 tech companies show men hold 82 percent of positions in the general tech sector. According to a recent study, the cyber security sector is even less diverse, as women make up only 11 percent of the workforce.
Why aren't women pursuing careers in STEM fields? Meet the problem solver at Booz Allen Hamilton who’s working to bridge the diversity gap and empower the next generation of women to change the world. Meet Cheryl Wade.

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., September 5, 2017/3BL Media/ - Today Verizon Innovative Learning, in partnership with the technology education nonprofit Digital Promise, announced it has added twenty-eight underserved middle schools to its program that equips students and teachers with free mobile devices and two-year data plans for access to the internet both in the classroom and at home.
Providing underserved people with access to learning that boosts economic opportunity and employability requires technology combined with innovative thinking. The HP World on Wheels program is supporting digital literacy, providing education programming and entrepreneurship training, and connecting students, entrepreneurs, and community members to government programs.
A good role model can be hard to find. Especially, for women in the technology industry.
But for companies, role modeling is part of a well-rounded strategy for leveling the playing field. It is also one of the trickiest to execute well for some companies. But as we’re learning at HP, it doesn’t have to be such a challenge.
At its core, good role modeling revolves around trust. Not only does it require trust between individuals, it also requires an organization that fosters frank conversations, openness, and the ability to meet people where they are.
