As someone who should have take. One more class to have a minor in econ with my bachelor’s.
It is a math and science issue, combined with a confidence issue. Fields like economics and coding are innately antisocial. Software has attempted to fix this through the use of agile and daily meetings, but in the end society sees fields like this as dry and not interesting.

Can it be done? Sure. Now for humor sake … think about the horrible catcall … that is disgusting and awful.
Picture in that world it being … hey can you see the IQ in her … damn. I bet her ROI calculations are mint.
I do hope for more women and POC in STEM, I support it 110%
