The African Academy of Sciences is conducting a study in Africa to assess factors contributing to or inhibiting women’s careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) in Africa. The study aims to identify the challenges and opportunities that women in STEM face through their career. The specific objectives of the study are:
1) Identify facilitating and inhibiting factors for Women in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics in Africa.
2) Explore strategies that are in place or can be developed to help with recruitment, retention and success of young girls and women in scientific fields in Africa.
3) Document policy, legislative and organizational initiatives that can significantly reduce the gender gap in STEM in Africa.
In view of this, the research team requests the participation of women in their online survey, with link indicated below:
