STEM and Gender Representation

Social norms today aren’t the same as they were fifty, or even twenty, years ago. These days, you can switch careers as often as you like. However, in this ever-changing landscape, women remain underrepresented in careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

Why there aren’t as many as there should be (statistically more than half of the population of gifted children are girls) comes down to two factors: the stereotypical perception girls hold of themselves (the “I’m not smart/good enough” pitfall) and of their peers (“only nerds like science”).

We need more girls in STEM for a variety of reasons, including the unlimited potential of what their minds can bring to the table. Here are some strategies to encourage more girls to embark on careers in STEM.
