Rate this:
This book will examine the problem of underrepresented populations (URPs) in the so-called "STEM" fields: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Who are these underrepresented populations? What creates them? And finally, why should there be concern about URPs in STEM? It will be shown that there is a crisis of a dearth of women, especially minority women, in STEM. This problem is especially acute in Computer Science. It will be shown what has combined to create the perfect storm of impending economic stagnation, impoverished populations, diminished innovation, and lack of interest in choosing these fields. Some solutions to the factors contributing to this problem will be proposed in order to correct this social injustice, and stave off losing America's status as one of the leaders in technological innovation and economic opportunity.
