According to a UNESCO report, only 35% of STEM students in higher education globally are women, and differences are observed within STEM disciplines. For example, only 3% of female students in higher education choose information and communication technologies (ICT) studies. This gender disparity is alarming, especially as STEM careers are often referred to as the jobs of the future, driving innovation, social wellbeing, inclusive growth and sustainable development.
Because of the aforementioned, ZNSF holds its 2nd Annual Girls in Stem against GBV Summit (GISAG) which will be hosted as part of the activities under the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ)-United Nations (UN) Joint Programme on Gender Based Violence Phase II.
The main objective of the Summit is to help in the fight against GBV by encouraging girls in high school to actively participate in STEM related occupations and technologies. The summit activities will include; STEM related games, networking, STEM & GBV debates and solutions. This plus much more interesting stuff STEM programs is what you should look out for.
Its the year of STEM possibilities because its possible!!
