Statistics show that the proportion of women in STEM fields drops significantly at every stage of career development. AWM programs address this problem at many levels, from activities designed to stimulate an interest in math among K-12 girls, through programs to support professional mathematicians in academia and industry. In particular, we are the largest, most effective organization providing support and encouragement for female students in the mathematical sciences at the college and graduate school level. These women provide a prime talent pool for STEM careers. Assuring their continued interest and success has significant and immediate pay-off for our economy.
