Dreams (and Jobs) for the Future

The White House released the Advancing Equity for Women and Girls of Color: 2016 Updated Report today and it has some good news packed around how little gender parity there still is in STEM.


Ok, so the good news is this: according to the White House, the U.S. has made positive strides, resulting in “unprecedented levels of public-private collaboration in support of next-generation STEM education, all with a focus on expanding participation of girls and other underrepresented groups.” That means government, businesses and private-citizens alike have all been banding together to create positive change.

The report delves into various areas of interest, including school discipline, teen pregnancy, the needs of vulnerable children and economic prosperity.

PowerToFly’s mission is to help women in tech — who are ready today — find fulfilling careers with companies that will value them and their diversity. We know the current statistics on minority women in STEM-related professions are alarming: only 1 out of 10 employed engineers and scientists in the U.S. is a woman of color. And with growth of STEM jobs anticipated to outpace the growth of non-STEM jobs over the next ten years, we need to work together to ensure equal opportunity for all.

So yes, more work needs to be done, but as the White House says, the right collaborations are happening at least when it comes to education. But if you want to see what’s out there for women in STEM now, then join us at PowerToFly.com. You can start by heading over to our website to fill out a profile and become part of our community of 100,000+ strong women. Aside from access to content you care about, you’ll also be able to apply to positions in STEM-related fields at companies who put diversity and inclusion above all.

Check out some of the open positions we’ve got available now:

Software Engineer (Backend) — Casper (NYC)

Automation QA Engineer — Hearst (NYC)

How To Handle Conversations on Race with Your Non-Black Coworkers

I sat in front of my CEO to discuss several complaints of racism. I was new to my role as a Culture Director. I was nervous about his reaction to the complaints. But I also knew he strongly supported developing this new department; I knew that he would take the right steps. So I was shocked when I heard him say sheepishly, "I don't know, Noelle...all of this stuff about racism. I just don't see it. I don't even see color. I'm pretty much color blind."
