Gender Equality and Social Inclusion
in STEM Fields and Industry

19 MARCH 2021
13:00-17:00 (GMT+3)
Forum Topics
1
What types of institutional arrangements promote meaningful participation of men and women from different generational groups in decisions related to educational management?
2
What actions should be taken to achieve greater participation of women in science and technology-based entrepreneurship and innovation activities?
3
What are global trends, existing challenges, and persistent obstacles in promoting gender equality through social dialogue?
Despite the remarkable gains that women have made in education and the workforce over the past decades, progress has been uneven. There is currently a large imbalance in the participation of women in STEM fields compared to men, in particular at more advanced career levels. The under-representation of women in STEM translates into the loss of a critical mass of talent, thoughts and ideas, which hinders countries from reaching their maximum development potential.

Once we define global trends, existing challenges, and persistent obstacles in relation to gender equality, we will discuss how we can build a more inclusive community and coherent roadmap for achieving equal access for all.
