Hosted by Google

Presented by If/Then (An initiative of the Lyda Hill Foundation)

Geena Davis, Lyda Hill and creators, change makers and thought leaders in the entertainment, media and technology verticals, corporations and NGOs focused on empowering women released new research study sponsored by the Lyda Hill Foundation.

Women constitute half (48%) of the college-educated workforce in the U.S., but hold only a quarter (24%) of jobs in STEM. Women, especially Latinx and Asian-American women, have seen a marked increase in STEM participation starting in the late 1990s, but their numbers remain low. Through this research we better understand why women are persistently underrepresented in STEM, and to examine the role of entertainment media in contributing to this underrepresentation.
