Abstract

The 21st century will require educational changes to meet the demands of industry. Workers in the 21st century must come equipped with a repertoire of both science and technology skills. Currently, many employers are concerned about where they will find highly trained and capable employees for the new century. Therefore, it has become increasingly important to provide female students an opportunity to explore careers in both science and technology. If we are to meet the demands of our technology driven society, all capable students and workers should be given an opportunity to maximize his/her potential. This article reviews the current state of gender equity in science and technology, and provides information on a program that addresses the gender equity issues.
