STEM

It’s amazing that so many #Soroptimists are working with young girls in schools inspiring them to take up careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Many Clubs planned activities to celebrate International Women in Engineering Day. Richmond and Dales held an event at RAF Leeming. In addition they are also holding a conference next October which will be attended by 200 pre-GCSE girl students.

Weston-Super-Mare also held an event with 188 year 9 girls with 16 different workshops.

The present report was prepared pursuant to Human Rights Council resolution 32/20. It underlines the multiple and intersecting obstacles that limit effective and equal access of girls to education and highlights good practices to address those barriers. It also contains recommendations on appropriate measures to ensure the equal enjoyment of the right to education by every girl and,
in that context, eliminate all gender disparities in education by 2030, in fulfilment of the commitment made in Goal 4 of the Sustainable Development Goals.
