According to a 2018 study by the NGC Project, women make up only 28% of the STEM workforce in the United States. Despite producing some of the most innovative technology and research results that we’ve ever seen, the STEM world still has a long way to go in terms of diversity. So, what is it like working in a field in which you are severely under-represented? Joining us again on the show is Dr. Knicole Colon, a research astrophysicist at NASA and a woman in STEM. We’re discussing her experiences working in the STEM field and how we can encourage other girls to pursue their career dreams as well.
