Through a collaborative Ella the Engineer comic book series, Deloitte joined forces with The Ella Project to support its mission to empower young girls who are passionate about science, technology, math, engineering, computers, entrepreneurship. Throughout the graphic novel, readers will see the main character, Ella, solving the problems she comes across with STEM and guidance from Deloitte leaders like Deloitte Chair and Consulting CEO Janet Foutty and Chief Innovation Officer Nishita Henry.

The story tells the tale of how Ella recovers her class pet by applying technology and her learned skills to creatively address issues.

Studies have shown there will be millions of STEM jobs that need to be filled in the coming years, yet women only represent a small percent of the STEM jobs in the United States.
