The study "SESTEM"(Supporting Equality in Science Technology and Mathematics related choices of careers) addresses the wide problem of gender imbalance in STEM. In the EC, there is evidence to suggest that the problem on access and retention of females in STEM remains an unresolved issue.
Likewise we lack tools so as to allow to reflect on good practices in supporting choices making for careers in STEM by girls. It focuses on issues related to gender differences across this triangulation factors: family, school and individual.
In this document, SESTEM introduces the project itself, presents a review of the key discussions taking place in Europe focusing on gender and student’s motivations regarding orientation and career’s choices, with suggestions derived from the results of the project. We hope this document will inspire a productive discussion in this community.
