This week marks the annual Computer Science Education Week Dec. 7-13, a week designed to promote and encourage individuals of all ages, genders, and races to take interest in computer science. One of the main focuses of this year’s event is to close the gender gap by inspiring women to take on computer science (and STEM) related majors and vocations.

This inspiration is much needed, for as this infographic shows, women comprise over 47% of the total U.S. workforce, yet only 24% of the STEM workforce. Take a look at the infographic below to find out more about how women are closing this gender gap in STEM!
