1. Celebrate The Economical Impact Of Equality In The Workforce
Sharala Axryd, CEO of The Center of Applied Data Science (CADS)
“Although there are more qualified STEM-based women in this part of the world, it is the men who ends up in the workforce doing the STEM work. Recently, CADS launched DATA FOR HER, a chapter that encourages the participation of women in data science. The programmes engage with females from secondary schools, universities and the workforce to break the glass ceiling through tailor-made initiatives.
On equality of salary, I think it is on-par but getting women into data science is still a struggle I’m actively trying to overcome. See, I preach that women in the workforce raises the GDP, which then increases the standard of living. There’s a whole economic life cycle to that."
