Championing the Success of Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths, and Medicine
A formal account of an observation, investigation, finding, activity or any other type of information.
This report explores the role of women in STEM and the challenges they face, looking at areas of gender inequality, exploring potential causes of this inequality and offering solutions. Women’s reluctance to step into leading roles, their tendency to suffer from “imposter syndrome” and their career breaks as a result of motherhood, are just some of the contributory factors holding them back, as well as the outdated, sexist attitudes they sometimes have to face in the workplace.
In recognition of Ada Lovelace Day, we hope this report is thought provoking and provides an incentive to become involved in helping us achieve “the tipping point”.
