Watch: How a 16-Year-Old Pilot Built an App to Get More Women & People of Color Into Flying
A pilot’s license can cost thousands of dollars. The app Pilot Fast Track connects rising aviators with scholarships to help them chase their passion. Meet Angelina Tsuboi, a 16-year-old pilot and app developer who is using her skills and passion to provide others - particularly women and people of color - with resources to pursue careers in aviation. Her journey wasn’t easy. Obtaining a pilot’s license costs thousands - if not tens of thousands - of dollars in coursework and flight time. To fund her training, Angela put a lot of energy into searching for scholarships. The more time she spent in aviation, however, the more she started to notice that most people in the industry don’t look like her. So she sought to help aspiring pilots, especially women and people of color, gain access to aviation by developing an app, Pilot Fast Track, to connect them with a marketplace of scholarships to offset the daunting cost of flight training.

Women Are Underrepresented in the Fast-Growing STEM Fields: 3 Strategies To Help Change This
To ensure we continue to discover important medical breakthroughs, pioneer groundbreaking technologies, and address global environmental challenges, we must attract the brightest minds to STEM fields. However, it's been shown that girls and young women lose interest in math and science as they move through their school years, leading to fewer women in STEM-focused careers. As someone who has devoted her career to building educational solutions that inspire all students to learn, Bethlam Forsa is passionate about developing curricula that help girls stay engaged in these subjects and see themselves in STEM careers one day. The unfortunate truth, according to research, is that women, along with Black and Hispanic workers, are underrepresented in STEM professions. Women comprise only 28% of the STEM workforce in the United States. With jobs in STEM fields expected to grow twice as fast as those in non-STEM fields, there's a window of opportunity for young women to step into this rapidly growing sector. However, if current trends persist, women face exclusion from professional opportunities. The key to shifting stereotypes lies in teaching math and science in a way that better engages girls. Here are three ways educators and parents can guide girls and young women toward the "on ramp" to STEM subjects.

Here Are the Skills You Need to Succeed in Tech in 2023
TECH JOBS TOOK a heavy hit in 2022. According to, 424 tech companies laid off 120,253 employees in the first two months of 2023. But it might not be as bad as it sounds. "This kind of realignment happens regularly, and often companies take the opportunity to do this under cover of an economic downturn," explains Rachel Bellow, a cofounder of Bonfire, a talent development accelerator for the rising generation of women in the workplace. If we examine hiring and firing numbers over the past 24 months, we see that companies like Meta, Salesforce, Microsoft and others have hired far more employees than they have fired, sometimes by a factor of 10. But according to LinkedIn's February Workforce Report, the industries that have seen the biggest declines since last spring are technology, information, and media (down 41 percent). To stay competitive in those fields, job seekers must keep their tech skills strong.

ATHENA – Gender Equality to unlock research potential
The ATHENA project is committed to strive towards gender equality, mitigating barriers to the recruitment, retention, and career progression of female researchers, and addressing gender imbalances in decision-making processes. ATHENA delivers and implements Gender Equality Plans (GEPs) in 8 research performing (RPOs) and research funding organizations (RFOs). ATHENA ensures that all people, disregarding of their gender, will have the opportunities to express their potential in research and contribute to an innovative, competitive and thriving Europe society”. Women are still underrepresented in most scientific disciplines, which constitutes a waste of talents for the European Research Area. We do not need only legal and administrative supporting mechanisms, we need to replace existing unconscious bias, with a more equal, inclusive, and fair understanding and practices of gender roles.

First Native American Woman in Space Steps Out on Her First Spacewalk
The first Native American woman in space ventured out on a spacewalk Friday to prep the International Space Station for more solar panels. NASA astronaut Nicole Mann emerged alongside Japan's Koichi Wakata, lugging an equipment bag. Their job was to install support struts and brackets for new solar panels launching this summer, part of a continuing effort by NASA to expand the space station's power grid. Mann, a Marine colonel and test pilot, rocketed into orbit last fall with SpaceX, becoming the first Native American woman in space. She is a member of the Wailacki of the Round Valley Indian Tribes in Northern California.
