Recently, there’s been a big push nationwide to get more females involved in technology and STEM career paths; STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics.  Studies have shown that women who work in STEM fields earn an average of 33% more than women in non-STEM fields.  But females are still underrepresented in these jobs especially in the state of Nevada.  This is an interview with Khara Muniz, co-founder of the Reno/Tahoe Chapter of Women Who Code, a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring women to excel in technology careers.  

For more information, or to inquire about joining the group, visit Women Who Code at meetup.com.
