According to recent U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, women make up 47 percent of the total U.S. workforce, but are much less represented in particular science and engineering occupations. They comprise 39 percent of chemists and material scientists, 28 percent of environmental scientists and geoscientists, 16 percent of chemical engineers, and just 12 percent of civil engineers.*
Where are all the women? They are coming on strong—and starting to make their mark in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
The National Geographic Society will bring together its most innovative and interesting explorers from around the world during its "Explorers Week" celebration from June 13 to 17. Through livestreams, video chats and more, the campaign will give global viewers the chance to interact with Society's leading researchers, conservationists and educators. Explorers Week coincides with the Society's annual Explorers Symposium, where top scientists deliver captivating stories of how exploration, storytelling and scientific discovery are making a difference across the globe.
The National Geographic Society has announced this year's class of Emerging Explorers, a group of scientists, conservationists and educators still early in their careers whose work is already pushing the boundaries of their chosen fields. The class consists of 13 young scientists, each of whom will receive a grant of $10,000 to support continued research and exploration.
As part of the Amgen Foundation’s commitment to inspire the next generation of scientists, we partnered with Change the Equation to conduct a survey to better understand what motivates U.S. high school students to pursue a science education. The report, titled “Students on STEM: More Hands-on, Real-World Experiences,” shows that students want additional opportunities that will inspire them to explore careers in scientific fields, and teachers are uniquely positioned to stimulate students’ interest in STEM.
