Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) are widely regarded as critical to the national economy. To diversify the STEM fields, it is critical to take a hard look at the stereotypes and biases that still pervade our culture. Without the presence of women in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), innovation is limited. Therefore, we need more women in STEM to further innovation and better represent the needs of society.
While India is celebrating 'Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav' at India@75, it is significant to highlight the women achievers leading the way across STEM. These women include educators, tech leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs with technology and skills necessary for a better future.
The "Compendium om Women in STEM: Vanguards of India@75" Compendium features the success stories and achievements of 125 women luminaries, entrepreneurs, researchers, and others who have made a significant mark in the arena of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
Professor Ajay Kumar Sood, Pricipal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India released a CII Compendium on Women in STEM: Vanguards of India@75 on 22 July 2022.
