ActionAid’s IWD event highlights disparities in STEM pathways

March 11, 2023

ActionAid Bangladesh coordinated the celebration of International Women’s Day on 7th March, 2023 in Dhaka. The event included an innovation expo, activities, an awards presentation, and a panel discussion. Specialists from a variety of industries attended the event and spoke about the significance of innovation and technology for gender equality, the current position of women in STEM fields, and the best ways to go forward in Bangladesh to enhance both in the future.

According to deputy education minister Mohibul Hassan Chowdhury, more female participation in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) topics or career routes won’t be possible, until there is a change or shift in society as a whole. Mohibul was speaking at the event “Innovation: Women’s Access and Participation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM),” organized by ActionAid Bangladesh Monday.

He also added that the main obstacles are the prevalence of gender stereotypes in our society and the lack of a strong educational system. Our national curriculum has to undergo a significant transformation. The Bangladeshi government is moving to make science education mandatory for all pupils up to the age of sixteen.
