Episode 24: Ending Pay Gap for Women in STEM
Wake County is a hub for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) employment. Everyone should have an opportunity to pursue a career that is a good fit for their individual skill set, but too often, STEM occupations are where the gender and wage gaps are the greatest.
Dr. Kasey Ashton and Dr. Saundra Williams explain how Wake Invests in Women, a collaboration among Wake County, Wake Tech and a cross-section of business and community leaders, is working to achieve pay equity for women working in STEM fields. Also hear how you can get involved to help increase the number of women, particularly Black and Latina women, in the pipeline for these higher-wage, higher-demand jobs.
Dr. Kasey Ashton is the director of Wake Invests in Women, a collaboration among Wake Tech, Wake County and area businesses.
Dr. Saundra Williams is a member of the steering committee for Wake Invests in Women, a collaboration among Wake Tech, Wake County and area businesses.
