Collins Aerospace in Charlotte, North Carolina is celebrating its 20th anniversary of supporting Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day, hosting more than 55 events in 13 countries. (Feb. 25)
KATIE CODY: The statistics are not good. Only 13% of engineers are women, and we've got to do better than that.
And when you have diverse thoughts, and when you have more women, you're going to get better ideas. You're going to get more innovative solutions. You're going to think of more creative things and cooler stuff for the future.
So it's so important to get these girls to be interested and stay interested in the STEM field, so that we can continue to develop them and hopefully someday they come and work for us.
