The future of work is anchored by technology, and yet, women continue to lag behind men with regard to their access to technology, the skills to use it, and employment in tech, and therefore risk missing out on the potential benefits of technological innovation.

On the eve of International Programmer’s Day, Quest Alliance brings together sector practitioners and experts for the launch of their white paper titled – Engaging Girls in STEM: Enablers and Barriers.

The paper highlights:

  • The need to re-imagine STEM beyond a group of subjects to a 21st century mindset
  • Gender gap in STEM education and factors that influence this in India
  • The role of key stakeholders and policy needed to enable girls to pursue STEM education and careers
  • Learnings from the #IBMSTEMforGirlsIndia program in government secondary schools across 10 states

This white paper is published with support from IBM and knowledge partners Tandem Research.
