Handbook on how to make Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) more appealing to girls and young women
Nordic Council of Ministers, Nordic Council of Ministers Secretariat2016 (English)Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
This handbook presents good examples of how players in the educational sector, including politicians, student counsellors and educational institutions, can work to break down the gender-segregated choice of study programme. The purpose of this handbook is to provide a tool which can help identify specific problem areas and implement solutions to resolve them. For this reason, the handbook is divided into sections focusing on what can be done by practitioners in businesses, institutions of higher learning and primary schools to increase the percentage of women within STEM, but the handbook can also be read in its entirety.
The handbook evolved from a major project, which resulted in the report in Girls and Young Women who choose STEM – a survey of the challenges relating to gender, equal rights and education in Scandinavia. The report is in Danish.
