We need to build greater diversity in STEM education. Like a lot of my colleagues, I’ve worked to create programs welcoming more girls and youth of color into STEM. We’ve made good progress, and we are creating positive momentum.
But one group that continues to be overlooked, even within strong and established programs, is youth who are disabled.

We need girls in tech. We need women in tech. We need women and underrepresented minorities across all areas of STEM. There are good reasons for this, reasons that benefit society, industry, the economy and international competitiveness.
But for me, one of the most persuasive is simply that girls and women deserve the freedom and opportunity offered by access to STEM fields.
