While job opportunities in STEM are on the rise, women still face barriers to obtaining a job and advancing in these fields due to various factors. Women are less likely to earn degrees in technology, engineering or physics. Even when women earn STEM degrees, their career choices and advances can be limited by obstacles they encounter in the workplace, including difficulties getting promoted, high-profile assignments, training opportunities, and informal networks. Although Europe and Central Asia tends to have a higher share of women in STEM fields than other regions, the number of women in leadership positions remains disproportionately small. We cannot afford to keep women, their voices and their leadership out of the STEM equation.
