Empowering women can make a significant difference in our society and nation. Promoting STEAM education can provide valuable opportunities throughout a woman’s career. Therefore, closing the gender gap in some of the fastest-growing and highest-paid jobs of the future.
Besides, with technology emerging as a key driver of innovation and revenue, we cannot overlook the importance of encouraging women to pursue STEAM careers.
However, it has been found that globally, in tertiary education, only 18% of the girls pursue science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) studies compared to 35% of boys. This leads to women constituting a modest 28% of the STEAM workforce.
Besides moral and ethical arguments which favor the diversity in STEAM, research reveals that lack of it could affect innovation and productivity in the future.
In addition to the above, reasons why women should aspire for careers in science, technology and engineering include:
Multiple employment opportunities
A higher pay advantage compared to non-STEAM careers
A scope to unleash creativity
Most of the STEAM skills are transferable, which allows one to change careers even after years
