Success Strategies for Women in STEM: Booz Allen Featured in CTI Study, Harvard Business Review
Over half (52 percent) of highly qualified women working for STEM companies leave their jobs, according to research by the Center for Talent Innovation (CTI). Yet one fifth of women currently employed in STEM are in senior-level positions, respected for their expertise, and satisfied with their jobs.

What differentiates the women who stay in STEM and succeed? To find out, CTI conducted a national survey of more than 3,000 individuals and conducted dozens of interviews and focus group conversations. This included talking with Dr. Velma Deleveaux, director, and Susan Penfield, executive vice president and chief innovation officer, from Booz Allen.

“Wonder Women” in STEM Continue to Thrive, Redefine the Traditional Career Path for the Next Generation
Although STEM employers spend billions of dollars to improve gender equality in their fields, women still face huge obstacles. Many highly-qualified women feel stuck in their careers, and more than half quit their jobs over time, according to Center for Talent Innovation (CTI) research. To address this, CTI’s new study, “Wonder Women in STEM and the Companies that Champion Them,” uses a data-driven approach to identify strategies linked to increased retention and career advancement for women, and shares insights from women who have achieved success in STEM careers. Booz Allen is one of the sponsors of this research.

STEM Girls 4 Social Good: Partnering with the FDA to Encourage the Next Generation of Women in STEM
Women comprise 47 percent of the U.S. workforce, but they hold only 24 percent of jobs in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), according to research from the Economics and Statistics Administration. Though women are earning a greater share of undergraduate degrees overall, they are less likely to pursue STEM-related education.

Booz Allen is on a mission to close the STEM gender gap. Enter STEM Girls 4 Social Good (SG4SG), an initiative that empowers middle and high school-aged girls to learn STEM concepts and apply them to society's most pressing problems. The signature event of SG4SG, which ultimately seeks to inspire early excitement around science, math, and technology, is a week-long learning experience each summer.
