STEM Women Whitepaper

At STEM Women, we are passionate about addressing the gender imbalance in STEM. We have compiled an in-depth Whitepaper that explores students’ and graduates’ attitudes towards gender issues that are prevalent within science, technology and engineering sectors (STEM).

Understanding the Gender Imbalance in STEM

We used survey data from 557 STEM students and recent graduates who identify as women or non-binary, studying at universities across the UK. The report reveals a number of key factors surrounding how students apply for roles, what they look for in prospective companies, and the specifications they look at before accepting a job offer. In this report, we cover a range of topics, from gender pay gap reports to the importance of diversity initiatives and issues surrounding imposter syndrome. Following the global pandemic in 2020, we have also factored in questions surrounding COVID-19 and the impact it has had on young women in STEM. Plus, we have introduced new questions for 2021 which focus on career confidence.
