Excerpt
Excerpt: In this new century, U.S. jobs are growing fastest in areas that require knowledge and skills stemming from a strong grasp of science, mathematics, engineering, and technology (SMET). The number of workers capable of adequately filling these jobs is not keeping pace. A critical shortage of workers in these fields threatens U.S. competitiveness in the global marketplace. The good news is that an enormous, underutilized human resource exists to fill the gap. Women, minorities, and persons with disabilities are significantly underrepresented in SMET occupations, even though they are among the fastest growing segments of the American workforce. Institutional change and partnerships are required to address this underrepresentation. If business, academia, and government come together to mine this resource and develop its inherent talents, the shortage could be eliminated before it undermines America’s leadership role in building the 21st Century workforce.
