"It’s more than a school subject, or the periodic table, or the properties of waves. It is an approach to the world, a critical way to understand and explore and engage with the world, and then have the capacity to change that world, and to share this accumulated knowledge."
– Barack Obama, Former US President, March 23, 2015
The skills shortage continues to increase across STEM fields in the US. Without technology at your fingertips, even simple tasks such as a Google search, signing up for online classes, or applying for jobs can be extraordinarily difficult.
Women are markedly under-represented across STEAM-related disciplines. Despite women gaining ground in biological and medical sciences (51%), they are rarely seen in other STEAM-based positions like engineering (13%) or in math and computer science (26%) jobs.
You can help! Donate technology and help human-I-T support STEAM-based organizations like Girls in Tech, and women interested in STEAM occupations.
STEAM fields are more than 70% represented by Caucasians in the US. Asian Americans are a distant 2nd with close to 15%. Other races and ethnicities make up the remaining 15%. African Americans and Hispanics make up the vast minority in Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math related positions at a combined 7% representation.
human-I-T focuses on connecting these underrepresented groups to technology and ultimately the internet, providing new avenues of learning outside the classroom environment. Read more about our diverse group of recipients.
Our locations provide a safe and friendly environment for all groups. As human-I-T looks to promote technological equality, our team urges you to get involved by volunteering or by just stopping by to meet a diverse group of like-minded technology enthusiasts seeking to make the world a better place.
