There is a large problem in the STEM workforce. It's not balanced in terms of race, gender, and disabilities. There are fewer women in the STEM workforce than in the general workforce, and white people make up the majority of workers in STEM. However, Parkway West High School is working to combat this with our competitive robotics teams. Our all female team's video goes over the issue in terms of the wider workforce, how the issue can be seen at our school, and how we are working to combat it and improve our statistics.
