I noticed your another artical named《 Distributor Quandary: Amazon's Bid for Business Buyers》. This artical really shows some out of the box thinking! Can we translate your artical into Chinese?  Sorry to bother you!

Thanks! I'm glad it was useful. I am hopeful that next year that we can report that OEMs are making strides in this area.

Nice to see you pop up, Jacob! There has historically been a trend in this direction. Educators, though, can encourage young women to embrace talents in math and science--and to keep reminding them that careers in these areas are fulfilling and interesting. I believe that these trends are much more about conditioning than actual talent.

"Today, women make up about 47% of the overall labor force, and yet only 29% of the manufacturing workforce, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in 2015. This was a minor increase from 27% the previous year. Especially considering the looming gap between the number of available workers needed and those available, electronics OEMs need to start considering how to identify and nurture female talent."

Hailey, now a day's companies are trying to recruit more women workforces as a part of gender equality. But facing difficulties in recruiting them, due to the unavailability of skilled workforce. Most of the women's prefer in-house jobs like IT/ITES/Accounting/Financial etc.
