Gender imbalance pervades many workplaces, and nowhere more so than in the STEM fields. Despite this, women have been at the forefront of major technological breakthroughs. From NASA’s Hidden Figures who helped win the space race, to the courageous all-girl Afghan Robotics team, women and girls are harnessing tech to change the world. What barriers have traditionally held women back from careers in STEM? How can men support women and drive tech equality? How is tech being used as a force for social good? This International Women’s Day, join the Council for an exciting discussion with leading innovators whose extraordinary minds are showing the world that women and girls have a key role to play.
