According to the United Nations, entrenched gender stereotypes and gender bias are driving girls and women away from pursuing careers in science-related fields. This is despite the percentage of females in the STEM workforce making up 24%.
Corporations with a balanced group of genders have a higher return on equity but a lower percentage of women. Women in STEM is an important issue that affects the world globally Women make up around half of all workers and half of those with postsecondary degrees, yet they hold less than a quarter of STEM jobs.
The lack of women in STEM fields has many adverse effects on society, including decreased innovation and competitiveness. It’s not just about equality for women; we all deserve the best we can get.
