In an article from the VA Vantage Point dated March 30, 2021,
“The Future of STEM is Women Veterans.”
“Women Veterans choose STEM related occupations at double the rate of non-Veteran counterparts. These women Veterans are making wise choices as, last year, 18 of the 20 highest paying careers were in STEM, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. The field is expected to grow by eight percent between 2019 and 2029.”
