As the world changes in time, society is now more open to alter its traditional beliefs. Women are now part of the working class, and many of them are empowered to dominate the businesses and industries.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) companies have long been dominated by men, but it seems that we are going to see more women dominating these industries soon.
But we want to show you why 2015 will be the right year for the ladies to rule the STEM world.
Increasing number of empowered ladies
There was an evident increase in the number of empowered women who are excelling in their STEM industries.
Silicon Republic listed the most powerful ladies in the business in 2014, which includes the following inspiring individuals:
Regina Moran, Fujitsu Ireland CEO
“It’s a passport to the world. Engineering is that base qualification that can take you anywhere.”
Andra Keay, Silicon Valley Robotics managing director
“Ask what do you want now, to free yourself from thinking about the limitations of the technology and let your imagination take you to what things do you want to have done, what problems do you want to solve.”
Madi Sharma, Madi Group founder
“If we don’t include everybody in the policy-making, in looking for new ideas, in innovation and research, we are missing out on solving the world’s problems with a different kind of thinking.”
There are various ways on how we can encourage more women to enter the STEM field, and Heather Huhman listed some of it in her Forbes article.
- Create more tech programs for women
- Change the K-12 curriculum where young girls will be introduced to STEM industries
- Defeat social stereotypes
Strong organization support
With the increase in the interest of women who wants to enter and excel in the STEM industries, various organizations are now supporting the cause by developing projects that encourage gender equality in the office setting and celebrating the top women who will be great inspirations and motivators to young girls today.
STEMWire listed the top STEM organizations that promote women in this sector:
Women @ NASA
Women employees of NASA are now encouraging more young ladies to be interested in science by creating videos and writing inspiring essays on the Women @ NASA website.
Interviews from registered women in the engineering world can be found here, where they can learn and understand the duties of each profession.
With the continuous change in the business sector, we should expect more women to showcase their abilities freely and dominate the STEM world.
What else should we do to encourage more young ladies to join the STEM industries?
