“Here are three tips for girls in STEM: First, remember there are no gender boundaries in science. Second, challenge yourself because that will help you to find new horizons. Third, be brave, open up and share your ideas to this wonderful world!”

”My wish is that this will provide a positive message to the young girls who would like to follow the path of science, and to show them that women in science can also have an impact through the research that they are performing.”

Gender barriers in STEM

Globally, women are underrepresented in STEM sectors. From a young age, girls are discouraged to pursue STEM limiting their options to explore opportunities for these fields as they transition into adolescence and adulthood. Whether it is because of social norms, gender stereotypes, occupational segregation, or exclusionary workplaces, women could fall further behind in the world of work. Learn more about how we can make changes from classroom to boardroom for an equal future in STEM.
