National Engineers Week runs from February 19th to February 25th this year! EWeek is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding and interest in engineering and technology careers.     The national STEAM workforce needs to be more balanced between men and women. Of all STEAM jobs, only 27% are held by women, and this number drops significantly regarding the representation of women of color in STEAM fields. Our newest program, EDGE (The Empowerment and Development of girls in Energy and Engineering), hopes to combat this by encouraging young women to become energy leaders and inspiring them to pursue a STEAM career through hands-on andRead More →
