GENDER GAP IN SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, EDUCATION, MATHEMATICS AND MEDICINE (STEMM)
Main Article Content
The approach to look forward along collaborative, diversified multi- disciplinary research draws attention on gender equality for achieving sustainable development goals. For a major part of human history, women are constantly striving to rise up in ranks and prove themselves. Despite the noticeable progress made in the recent years shown by increasing representativeness in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM), we still have a long way to go. Women in top leadership positions, decision making roles and officers of authority still remain a few. One of the main barriers for women is at the middle career level, balance in transition from college to post-doctoral researchers and even after crossing this gender gap they face problems at every step in their career. Such great loss and underuse of human resources in this field can be prevented by the gender parity method to create equal opportunities for entry and progress into greater STEMM innovations. But in the end, a mind open to progress and growth would offset all the differences as it provides perseverance in moments of hardship that steers us towards our desired goals.
