This section is dedicated to women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) . SKILLBILL combats gender stereotypes, bias and discrimination and helps to encourage women to realise their full potential in all fields. SKILLBILL adopts an inclusive approach that takes into account the importance of gendering the STEM sector.
Perhaps you are asking yourself why SKILLBILL proposes this section, since this is not a current problem? Well, the need for a greater participation of women in technical fields is described in several studies: women researchers, designers, installers and even final users usually face both direct and indirect discrimination. The academic community generally offers them inadequate professional support, which is important for career advancement. Beyond higher education, UNESCO observed that globally men still wield more power in many societies and women do not benefit from their education to the same extent. Women often need greater efforts to obtain the same job and face discrimination and power imbalance, all of which hinders them in the achievement of their full potential, encounter discrimination and disparities of power, having difficulty to achieve their full potential.
SKILLBILL believes that showing good role models and motivating people to express themselves respectfully can be a starting point.
“Gender bias is undermining our social fabric and devalues all of us. It is not just a human rights issue; it is a tremendous waste of the world’s human potential. “
