Women in STEM - Astrato GoodViz Submission
We as a team - Era, Khushbu and Louisa - are excited to have published our first ever Astrato Dashboard as a submission for the Astrato GoodViz Challenge - Women in STEM!
The dashboard gives an overview about the gender inequality currently prevailing in STEM jobs within the US.
Even thought the percentage of women in both STEM and non-STEM fields grows faster (64%) than the number of male employees (60%), at the current rate we would reach an equal 50/50 split by 2207. Additionally, all of the biggest five STEM occupations in the US have less than 50% female practitioners.
As the number of female STEM employees is growing at a similar rate as the number of female STEM students, promoting STEM degrees in schools and universities would likely lead to in increase in female STEM employees as well.
Here is the link to our dashboard so you can see for yourself: https://app.astrato.io/embed/XQ7szci
Note: We noticed that actions aren't currently supported in embed links, but we wanted to include them in our project, as it is an Astrato feature we are very excited about. If you want to check out the dashboard with the actions activated (i.e. the two buttons clicked), you can do so here: Women in STEM.
