Challenge

According to the Venezuelan Observatory of Science Technology and Innovation, 22% of STEM professionals in Venezuela are women, which is a low percentage, having an unfavorable impact on their economic growth. Gender stereotypes limit access to professional opportunities, interests, and participation in STEM, placing them in traditional roles, such as caring for the home and children, administrative positions and others, which discourages them to choose these careers.

Solution

The STEM Skills Program will strengthen 200 girls and women between the ages of 15 and 29 in technology and the development of social-emotional skills and analytical, critical, and creative thinking. The program will build young women's confidence in science and technology developing educational workshops that allow playful and practical experiences, inspired by female role models. They will be objective to transmit a renewed perception of STEM and their ability to act in them.

Long-Term Impact

Girls and women, will have opportunities to learn about STEM and develop the skills and attitudes necessary to succeed in these careers. The impact on their homes through them will benefit their communities, helping to reduce the gender gap in STEM careers in Venezuela.
