The States with the Smallest Gender Gap in STEM Careers

For a country that want to be known to the rest of the world as a free world and the epitomy of democracy, human rights, and civilizations. The United States of America sure does have its fair share of imbalances. In the article we are going to delve into the gender imbalance particularly in STEM careers across the USA.

Women are still underrepresented in STEM fields across the country, but the STEM gender gap varies depending on which state you work in. Hazel Garcia

published an infographic depicting the gender gap in STEM occupations in INVESTMENTZEN.

Garicia

shows a map based on the U.S. census data, on how many men are in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Science) occupations for every 1 woman in each state.
