“Tell A Girl…” is an awareness campaign encouraging young women ages 8 to 18 years old to focus on STEM-related careers, especially in aerospace. The “Tell A Girl…” campaign invites you to encourage girls through words of wisdom to consider STEM-related fields.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, women make up 48% of the working population, but only 26% are STEM workers compared to 74% of men. The aerospace industry reports a stagnate 24% of women. By attracting and retaining more women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), the workforce will maximize innovation, creativity, and competitiveness (American Association of University Women).
