Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are the skills in high demand for the workforce of the future. STEM4ALL is a UNDP platform dedicated to accelerating gender equality and the representation of women in STEM to meet the demands of the future of work in Europe and Central Asia.
Women are underrepresented in STEM sectors. From a young age, they are discouraged or steered away from STEM subjects throughout their education, limiting their abilities to explore their aptitudes and opportunities for these fields. Whether it is because of social norms, gender stereotypes, occupational segregation, or exclusionary workplaces, women could fall further behind in the world of work.
