STEMinism: What Needs to Change to Keep Women in STEM

In 2022, 2,891,788 people were employed within STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) careers, with this expected to increase by 2.9% by 2026 . This growth is expected to continue beyond this, as new working styles and technologies drive forward significant change in the way employment is organised. Regardless of major advancements in STEM fields, women are regularly missing within these workforces, particularly at management levels.
