Diversifying India's STEM workforce: STEM Education Programme success story

    Press/Media: Other

    Description

    A Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) workforce is crucial to India's economic development and social welfare, but women are underrepresented in STEM careers. Although women constitute 40 percent of science undergraduates in India, only a fraction move into successful academic careers and even fewer reach top positions in research and administration. This results in a loss of talented workforce.
