Mentoring @ STEM ConnectHER

Thank for joining the STEM ConnectHER community as a mentor. Your participation will help support the next generation of young women persist and succeed in their STEM Career journey.

We can make a difference together

We know that the gender gap in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) is a global issue, and Asia and the Pacific are no exception. The lack of gender equity is most apparent in engineering and information technology education, where only 21% and 29% of tertiary graduates are women.

This gender imbalance is amplified in STEM-related research and development, where women make up only 20% of the workforce. There is much work that needs to be done before gender parity is achieved in Asia’s STEM ecosystem. We’re delighted that you are joining us to help close the gap.
