Press Release on Gender imbalance in STEM careers
The Society has issued a press release highlighting that a sharp decline in female performance at the highest level in Leaving Certificate Higher Level Mathematics since 2012 is likely to create a gender imbalance in STEM careers and in female access to high-points third level courses generally. This is according to a report prepared by the Society's Gender Pipeline Working Group.
The report can be read on our website here and will be discussed at a public webinar on 29th November. Click here to register for this webinar and to engage with our panel of actuaries and academics on this important topic.
