Lt. Governor Jenean Hampton is challenging Kentucky to get more girls
involved in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) careers.
Seventy-one percent of all jobs in 2018 will require STEM skills. STEM careers offer very competitive salaries; in fact, according to the U.S. Department of
Commerce, women with STEM jobs earned thirty-three percent more in 2014
than in non-STEM jobs.
The Commission on Women, an office of the Governor, has created and is
hosting a pilot STEM program for girls at three Lexington middle schools
-- Beaumont, Leestown and Tates Creek. Read more here ...http://women.ky.gov/About/Pages/STEM.aspx
