Re: More Talent
Together, we can mind the gap for future generations. Measuring progress is a critical step in building a better STEM workforce. I'm so glad to see these increases!

Digital Economy creation
I really enjoyed speaking with Karen and hearing her enthusiasm for the industry and the important work she will be doing on the Commerce Department's Digital Economy Board of Advisors. The committee was just recently formed and held its first meeting this month, so I'm looking forward to hearing their goals and plans as they develop. Not a bad way to spend retirement!

Re: More Talent
I liked the 33% as a tipping point theory too. It helps to see yourself in programs, as well as have strong female role models there, so more female teachers would help as well. To get to that 33%, however, we need more pioneers who make the leap NOW despite the challenges and lack of females.

Re: More Talent
Agreed. Attaching a lot more talent overall is a very good thing. I'm looking forward to that future.

More Talent
STEM needs more talent. That means engineering is no longer just the realm of white males. Women and minorities can raise the level of talent in the STEM field. And I agree that getting over that 33% level will really help to raise that awareness.
