The data is not a guarantee of success in STEM, but it suggests that women and minority students often face barriers, including a lack of access to career and technical support and the fact that women tend to be less likely to complete advanced degrees.
The report, “What STEM is for?” was released Tuesday by Next Big Frontier, an initiative of the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health to help address the gender gaps in science and technology.
In order to measure progress, Next Big Forests collected data from the American Association of University Women (AAUW) STEM Education and Career Council, which measures gender-related disparities in STEM.
It also analyzed data from AAAUW’s 2015 STEM Achievement Survey, a survey of high school students in which students identified their gender and ethnicity as well as their experience with STEM-related STEM education and careers.
While the AAUW report showed a significant gap in women’s progress in STEM fields, the Next Big Forest report found that there was a gap in the number of women who entered the workforce.
Women make up roughly 20% of the workforce, but are just 10% of STEM-technical positions.
This means that they are at a significant disadvantage when it comes to gaining advancement in STEM-specific fields.
“The gap in men’s advancement is much larger, with women’s advancement at the same level as their male counterparts,” said Elizabeth Brown, a senior analyst at Next Big Futures, which analyzed the data.
“But even when we look at gender diversity, it’s still far below the gender-neutral level that we would expect.”
Brown said that while women tend not to have the same skills and experience as men, they tend to have greater technical and managerial skills, and thus are likely to be better able to access career and financial support.
But there are signs that progress is still being made in addressing the gender gap.
According to Next Big Forestry, women are more likely to get STEM degrees than men, but the gap is narrowing.
The report found, for example, that men are more than twice as likely as women to be in STEM majors, and men are about 4% more likely than women to have completed a STEM degree.
And while women are still a minority of science and engineering occupations, the gender pay gap is beginning to widen.
For example, according to Next Bi, a firm that tracks gender and race disparities in science, women earn about 79% of what men earn, but their earnings are still not comparable to their male peers.
Women are also much more likely, according the report, to be the first women to enter the workforce in a STEM-focused job.
This may be due to the fact there are a higher number of females in the STEM fields compared to men, Brown said.
“Women are less likely than men to receive STEM degrees, but they are also more likely that to enter STEM-intensive jobs, like computer programming or health care,” Brown said in a statement.
“The data indicates that women have a greater chance to enter fields like health care, and women are much more attuned to what STEM is about.”
But despite the progress being made, the report found there are still many barriers for women.
The data shows that women are only half as likely to finish their bachelor’s degrees as men.
This can be due in part to the way women are often judged by their families and friends for what they’re doing, and this can also impact their career choices.
And although there is more gender equity in STEM in general, women still have lower representation in leadership positions.
As a result, there is a gender pay equity gap that continues to grow.
While women earn $12,000 more per year than men for doing the same work, women make 78 cents for every dollar earned by men, according Tooby.
Even when they are making the same amount, women often don’t have the financial resources to support themselves financially.
And there is also a racial pay equity issue, as women make 77 cents for the same salary as men and blacks are paid just 79 cents, according Brown.
That said, Next Bi noted that there is good news.
For every dollar that women make compared to their men counterparts, they are paid $5 less.
That means that women who are in the same profession earn $14,000 less, compared to $21,000 for men and $38,000 fewer for blacks.
This disparity could also be related to gender, but there is one area that has been particularly notable.
Black women are overrepresented in STEM and in STEM occupations.
Black women make up 14% of all women in STEM jobs, but over half of those women are working in computer programming and math occupations.
This suggests that while black women may be more likely not to complete STEM-based careers, they also have less access to financial support to pursue them.
Overall, the gap between women and men in STEM has narrowed significantly in recent years,
