    To this day I regret not majoring in statistics. I remember hiding my 100% score on the midterm while my friends lamented how hard the class was. Despite always excelling in math, not once did I consider going into a STEM field. I also can only count one or two teachers that encouraged me to challenge myself in these areas, so I usual found math and science classes to be a chore I had to overcome. Adults need to starting challenging girls to pursue math and science and break down the self-efficacy barriers that are systemic in our society so they can continue to succeed in college and beyond.

  • The social stigma of being good at math led me away from math and engineering and into finance and development finance to be precise. Still need and use math but can now leverage it for strategy development and working for societal impact.

    It is not only about being gifted, it is not only about getting the training either, it is also and mostly about offering long term career perspectives and job opportunities in STEM fields to women. For now there is a massively leaky pipeline from when women start their education in a STEM to when they get a job matching their training. It is challenging to encourage them to pursue such trainings under such conditions but it has to change.

    There are two fundamental questions to ask and research further. One whether these women are positively indoctrinated into pursuing humanities? Or whether there is a negative bias against women in math. Only based on anecdotal evidence from personal experience on Wall Street, women often are some of the most astute financial analysts as associates but generally do not step up to take leadership roles as Wall Street analysts or lead bankers. Even in firms where we have had proactive gender inclusion oh, this has barn out to be the case. I have always assumed that this is a function of the jobs being road warrior, 18-hour days flying 200k miles per annum minimum etc. Making it a life choice, but it definitely bears further investigation.

  • Interesting point of view, but oftentimes, women don’t choose STEM careers because of harassment and lack of support.
