Women in STEM: Myths and Misconceptions
Too often employers address “women’s issues” as if they were a homogenous set of ideas – but Universum research shows women who study STEM subjects often have ideas and attitudes that are very different from women who want to work in business. In fact, women in STEM sometimes have more in common with men who pursue careers in STEM than women who want to work in business fields. What’s more, attitudes vary country by country and region by region, sometimes to such a large degree that a single “average” doesn’t tell an accurate story, in this report we’ll point to areas where this is particularly true.
Each year, Universum surveys the professional expectations of more than 1,000,000 career-seekers from 55+ countries, and publishes dozens of reports on the top issues affecting global talent and the companies that hire talent. In this report, part of our Future Talent Insight Series, we uncover what female university students look for from future employers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics – and how companies can translate these findings into actionable steps for HR, recruiting and C-level leadership.
