I like Betsy's STEAM acronym that includes Arts :-)

Although, if we are going to be honest with ourselves, it's in the traditional STEM fields that we see a labor shortage and it's in those fields that we need future talent to be able to pay our bills. And it's perfectly doable. Just think how many more smart engineers and scientists we'd get if young women applied to STEM college courses at the same rate as young men do.
