"STEM'ing the underrepresentation of women, African-Americans & Hispanics in IT departments"
Wednesday, February 3, 2021, 12:15 PM - 1:15 PM
Charles Imohiosen, panelist

Unfortunately, female IT professionals still earn about 19–30% less than their male counterparts. In general, thirty percent or less of employees in computer science and engineering are female. Black and Hispanic workers continue to be underrepresented as well. Blacks make up 11% of the U.S. workforce overall but represent only 9% of STEM workers, while Hispanics comprise 16% of the U.S. workforce but only 7% of all STEM workers. Among employed adults with a bachelor’s degree or higher, blacks are just 7% and Hispanics are 6% of the STEM workforce. Join us for a candid conversation on how law firms, legal departments, and talent agencies can do their part to increase female and minority exposure to education, employment, and leadership opportunities inside of of IT, data science, and legal technology departments.
