Just 14% of engineers in the US are women, even though engineering and tech are two of the fastest growing fields when it comes to job creation. Engineers are literally the builders and designers of our world; from the products we use, to the way we communicate, to the cities we inhabit. Gender equality in these fields will provide the balance and innovation that we all need to thrive; the female perspective is indeed a valuable one. Girls are losing interest in math and science as young as age 8. Research shows that the earlier kids get interested in math and science, the more likely they are to go into those fields as adults.
