DIVERSITY and EQUITY IN STEM

The Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) field is widely seen as the field of the future. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Employment Projections program, by 2028 STEM jobs’ employment is projected to grow by 8.8%Β while healthcare jobs that require STEM skills will grow higher as well. Non-STEM jobs, on the other hand will only grow by 5%. With this backdrop, it is important that all students are provided access and opportunities to receive quality STEM education. However only 8% of STEM teachers were black in 2019 and Blacks adults state that they are not welcomed in STEM professions. The article in this link below discusses possible ways to ensure that black and minority students are prepared for future STEM jobs. https://wordinblack.com/2022/11/stem-is-the-future-how-do-we-get-black-kids-involved/
