Celebrating Women in STEM
Across all sectors, women have made key contributions in the workforce, but despite some progress over the last decade, many challenges remain as a result of systemic inequalities, biases, policy issues, and gender stereotypes. Conversely, early research shows that the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic could exacerbate the limited progress that has been made on gender equality and women’s rights.
At Georgia Tech Professional Education (GTPE), we believe progress is achievable, but will require a willingness to embrace the power of inclusion. We also believe the future of work is better equipped with women at every table where decisions are being made.
We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, we can all break the bias.
