    How a Confidence Mindset Can Help Close the Gender Gap in STEM

    Corinne Hoisington discusses how the fourth industrial revolution brings promise for those who understand technology.  Many experts agree that the future global economy will be built on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) jobs.  As we look to fix the global shortage of qualified STEM workers, it is clear that we must utilize a confidence mindset to close the gender gap as women are greatly underrepresented in STEM fields.
