Bridging The Gender Gap In STEM
Workforce diversity in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) sector is a major challenge. Careers are male dominated; just 9% of Engineering, 19% of Computer studies and 38% of Maths graduates are female. In fact, just 13% of the entire UK STEM workforce is female.
Despite continued efforts to bridge the gender gap in our Science, Technology, Engineering and Math’s workplaces, the number of women engaging with STEM careers is decreasing.
WE NEED TO FIND OUT WHY...
THINKING FORWARD TO BRIDGE THE GENDER GAP IN STEM
In response to this Forward Ladies are undertaking a nationwide “Thinking Forward; Bridging the Gender Gap in STEM” research report, asking women themselves how we can move forward to best increase gender parity in the STEM workplaces and drawing a spotlight on the pioneering women within each sector to see how we can think forward.
