Ali Jaffer and Mona Mourshed at McKinsey take a look at how to attract more women in the United States to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. In comparison to their counterparts around the world, American women identified as “high performers” are studying STEM subjects at lower rates (just 4%). Jaffer and Mourshed explore some of the reasons for this difference and how the U.S. can begin to close the gap.
