Empowering women and girls to step into the STEM spotlight
This year’s International Women’s Day theme is about embracing equity, but what is the difference between equality and equity and why is it important? Equality is giving individuals and groups the same resources or opportunities but for a truly inclusive world we need equity. Equity recognises that each person has different circumstances and allocates the exact resources and opportunities needed to reach an equal outcome and that couldn’t be more true when it comes to empowering women and girls to step into (and not out of) the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) spotlight.
