There's a big disparity when it comes to men versus women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) professions. As a techie since childhood, I've always been fascinated with STEM and even earned my networking certificates before graduating high school! Coding at an early age is what got me motivated to get into a STEM profession. It's also why in college I went on to earn my Bachelor's of Science degree in information technology new media from Rochester Institute of Technology.
My interest in STEM has shaped my exciting career as a tech expert and global tech consultant, and part of my personal mission is to get more girls and young women interested in STEM careers. So in honor of National Engineers Week (Feb. 19-25), let's take a look at some tools that should really get a gold star for encouraging and increasing the number of girls and women to go into STEM fields.
