Dr. Freeman Hrabowski, III on Inclusiveness in STEM
A conversation with Dr. Freeman Hrabowski, III
Jobs in science, technology, engineering and math - or STEM fields - are on the rise. Over the past 10 years, growth in STEM jobs was three times as fast as growth in non-STEM jobs. But statistics indicate that while the number of STEM jobs is increasing, the number of minority STEM workers is not keeping pace with that growth. With Dr. Freeman Hrabowski III, Chairman of President Obama's Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for African-Americans and President of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Dr. Hrabowski is author of the book, "Holding Fast to Dreams: Empowering Youth from the Civil Rights Crusade to STEM Achievement"
