President Trump Signs Two Bills Focuses On Women To Pursue Careers

President Trump Signs Two Bills Encouraging Women To Pursue Careers In Science And Business

The bills plan to support business programs for women and to encourage them to pursue careers in math and science, reports CBS News.

The first bill, the Inspiring the Next Space Pioneers and Innovators and Explorers Act (INSPIRE), directs NASA to encourage women to pursue careers in science, mathematics and engineering.

The INSPIRE act “authorizes NASA to encourage women to pursue careers in engineering, science, and mathematics,” while the Promoting Women in Entrepreneurship Act “authorizes the National Science Foundation to provide support for women’s entrepreneurial programs.”

President Trump also plans to pass an executive order aimed at strengthening historically black colleges and universities. Vice President Mike Pence reaffirmed the administration’s support of HBCUs during a meeting Monday.

“You deserve far more credit than you get, and know that beginning today, this administration is committed to making sure that our historically black colleges and universities get the credit and the attention they deserve,” Pence told those gathered.
