Description

Following a description of the Women in STEM framework – which for each section identifies many opportunities for economies, educators, and employers to improve conditions for women in STEM – this report sets forth a number of recommendations for APEC-wide consideration. These include developing and sharing APEC-wide models for STEM education, employment, and advancement policies. In addition, this report recommends that APEC institutions with a direct interest in Women in STEM, including the Human Resources Development Working Group and the Policy Partnership on Science, Technology, and Industry, prioritize and act on specific concerns and opportunities associated with Women in STEM. Moreover, as contemplated by the Dashboard, it is suggested that APEC continue promoting among economies the importance of sex-disaggregated data within all social and economic functions, including in the STEM fields.
