Women in the public eye and overcoming stereotypes
We call for more visible digital role models, because young people are shaped by role models. This can only be achieved by increasing the portrayal of digital women in the media. But broad communication about occupational fields, job requirements and opportunities, and career options is also necessary so that young girls and women decide in favor of digital apprenticeships, courses of study, and professions. More advice on STEM and digital professions, which is what many girls lack at school. For too many schoolgirls, a career in the #tech sector is still seen as an exception rather than an alternative.
"57% of all female students would have liked more advice at school on prospects and career opportunities with STEM subjects.
