The Issue

51% of the U.S. population is made up of women.
They earn almost 60% of undergraduate degrees and 60% of all master’s degrees
They account for 47% of the U.S. labor force and 49% of the college-educated workforce

And yet…
Although they hold almost 52 percent of all professional-level jobs,
 American women lag substantially behind men when it comes to their representation in leadership positions

In 2014, women were just 20% of executives, senior officers, and management in U.S. high-tech industries.
As recently as 2016, 43%t of the 150 highest-earning public companies in Silicon Valley had no female executive officers at all.

This is an issue that YWCA Silicon Valley is working to change.

 It's Time to Think Big!

Our commitment to equitable opportunity and representation goes beyond Tribute.
We are on a mission to build a more equitable playing field well into the future. 

This means tackling the uneven access to education and leadership opportunities in our community's schools.
YWCA Silicon Valley provides integrated and innovative systems change initiatives to eliminate barriers of gender, race and class in the STEM fields. 

Our Curated Pathways for Innovation (CPI) program, creates opportunities for
students of all backgrounds to engage in STEM learning and mentorship. 

This program shrinks the gap by removing obstacles typically faced by girls and minority students.
It provides and sustains guidance and structure, 
helping to connect them to growth-oriented careers.
