Equality of Opportunity In Action: Bridging the Leadership Gap for Black Women in STEM Careers

March 23 @ 12:00 - 17:00 CDT

Equality of Opportunity In Action: Bridging the Leadership Gap for Black Women in STEM Careers

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Equality of Opportunity Initiative invites you to Equality of Opportunity in Action: Bridging the Leadership Gap for Black Women in STEM Careers on Tuesday, March 23 at 1:00 PM EDT.

In 2016 Black women earned more than 33,000 bachelor’s degrees in science and engineering, and 24% of doctorates were awarded to Black women were in STEM, yet that same report showed that in 2017, only 5 percent of senior level jobs in STEM were held by Black women and men combined. This program will explore barriers, like gender stereotypes and lack of representation, and how the business community is working together to create opportunities for Black women in STEM.
