girls, STEM, stereotypes, economy, careers, gender gap


There is a huge disparity in gender gap in STEM fields. Research has shown that companies work better and innovation thrives when the workforce is more diverse. However, many girls face untrue stereotypes and cultural pressure that they should not pursue STEM careers. It is up to us to change the negative perceptions of girls working in STEM and instead support and uplift girls and encourage them to work in STEM. Girls have the power to change the world for the better and everyone needs to help and encourage them to do it!
