We interviewed women in our offices around the globe, learning their stories and experiences as they began pursuing their careers in STEM related fields. We wanted to know what they studied, what made them choose this path and what helped them stay on track and focus on their dreams.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) is a term addressing education policy and curriculum choices in schools to improve competitiveness in science and technology development. In an age where technology continues to transform the way we live, work and learn, the need for diversity is essential in order to fuel the next generation of innovators. And such diversity provides greater presence and activity of women in the STEM area.
Women have historically been under-represented in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields mostly due to environmental and social barriers. There is a cultural shift that’s happening due to women getting more involved and seeking real viable change. In many analyses it has been shown that empowering women is a catalyst for productivity and development. One thing is for certain, STEM is fundamental to future generations and we need more women involved in creating that new future and transforming the business world for years to come.
Ayming wanted to gain insight into the perspectives and first hand journeys of powerful, intelligent and driven women who are leading the way in STEM and business.
