About this Talk

The higher share of people living in poverty are women. The cause of gendered poverty is structural. It is entrenched in societies, workplace setting and embedded in personal relationships.

Increasing women participation in STEM has proven to be an enabler to reduce the poverty level for women in underprivileged communities because STEM jobs are likely to result in higher wages and help empower economically challenged women.

Session Takeaways

1- STEM is undeniably important for women empowerment because it offers them an outlet leading away from the cycle of poverty;

2) Professions in STEM industries are not accompanied by higher wages, but they also come with numerous opportunities;

3) Ending occupational segregation in nontraditional fields, like STEM, is a critical step toward less poverty
