Bridging the STEM Gender Gap

Today, February 11th, marks the International Day for Women and Girls in Science. Given that the jobs of the future will be driven by technology and innovation, it’s important to bridge the gender gap in STEM-related fields and encourage women’s participation in science.

We speak to Dr Chai about the state of affairs for women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) related fields.
