Women in STEM are paving the way for greater opportunity and equality.

A NYC area retail technology consultant and MSP reviews the current state of women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields in a new article on the eMazzanti Technologies website.

In the informative article, the company cites statistics regarding women in STEM that show a large gender disparity. The business benefits of women in STEM and the part that mentoring plays in retention are then presented. The article concludes with examples of prominent women in STEM, including several millennial women.

As a women-owned technology business, eMazzanti Technologies concludes the article by citing its 17-year track record of women in STEM. The company actively seeks gender equality with results that are above the national average.

“Women in STEM are paving the way for greater opportunity and equality,” stated Jennifer Mazzanti, CEO of eMazzanti Technologies. “Our customers experience the benefits of women in technology first-hand and support the progress we are making.”

Below are a few excerpts from the article, “Women in STEM: #PressForProgress in the Tech Space.”

“The 2018 theme for International Women’s Day is #PressForProgress, a clarion call for gender parity. Technology companies have a unique opportunity to empower women, making a difference for generations to come. Greater equality for women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) not only benefits women but improves business, as well.”

Benefits of Women in STEM

“Women around the world are beginning to realize the opportunities awaiting them in science and technology. The average yearly salary for STEM occupations nearly doubles that of non-STEM occupations. In addition, the gender earnings gap is drastically smaller in STEM jobs.”

“As more women choose careers in STEM, businesses also benefit. Statistics show that companies that employ more women perform substantially better than their competitors. Startups founded by women also generate more revenue than their male counterparts.”

Mentoring Makes the Difference

“Women with mentors, particularly female mentors, are far more likely to stay in STEM fields and find success. Those with a strong support network and positive role models are better able to develop the confidence and tools necessary to push through discrimination and take their place in boardrooms and on the front lines of innovation.”

Women in STEM Lead by Example

As women in the tech space share their stories and build connections with the women around them, they do far more than build businesses. Their physical, visible presence in the STEM environment strengthens their peers and inspires the rising generation.

Jennifer Mazzanti, CEO of eMazzanti Technologies is one of those role models. As co-founder of the New Jersey-based women-owned technology business, she has provided leadership in the tech space for the past seventeen years. Her firm employs women at greater than the national average rate for women in technology, and on a par with Google.
