Let’s just face the reality, the gender gap still exists in fields like STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) where sadly, women continue to be devalued. No matter how good you are at your job, if you’re a female, you’re just not considered as good as a male. The Global Day of Giving this year is an open opportunity to make a significant impact and join hands to get rid of this gender gap women have been facing for years.
Understanding the Gender Gap
The gender pay gap is a critical issue that symbolizes broader systemic inequalities. Women around the world, especially in technology and other STEM fields, often earn less than their male counterparts for the same work. This disparity is not just about unequal pay; it’s about unequal opportunities and the undervaluation of women’s contributions.
Empowering Women Through Tech Education
Giving Tuesday Heart becomes a powerful tool to address these issues, here are some ways:
