STEM Goes Red
Our future is why.
STEM Goes Red is the American Heart Association’s nationwide movement dedicated to empowering a future generation of female STEM leaders, while providing them with the tools and resources for living long, healthy lives. As cardiovascular disease continues to be the number one killer of women, ensuring more women are at the forefront of developing science, technology, education and math (STEM) solutions has never been more imperative. STEM is our future and as a science-based organization, STEM is at the heart of who we are and what we do.
Women fill close to half of all jobs in the U.S., but hold less than 25% of STEM jobs, of which there are millions becoming available. Employment in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) occupations is projected to grow, and women are vastly underrepresented in these fields. The demand for workers in the STEM fields is outpacing the number of college graduates with science, technology, engineering, and math degrees.
