Women earn almost 60% of all bachelor’s degrees in the United States, but they earn only 20% of computer science degrees, 20% of physics degrees, and 18% of engineering degrees. And estimates show that by 2018, the U.S. will face a shortage of more than one million STEM workers. This presents an enormous opportunity to better support young women in pursuing STEM-related careers, and Zenefits is committed to being part of the solution.
