On this year’s #InternationalWomensDay, SBRC put together powerful quotes from dynamic women shining in the field of STEM. We wanted to amplify the social noise around women smashing stereotypes and effortlessly breaking the glass ceiling in the field of tech and cyber! 

A significant gender gap has persisted throughout the years at all levels of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines all over the world. Even though women have made tremendous progress towards increasing their participation in higher education, they are still under-represented in these fields. – Full and equal access and participation for women and girls in science, UN

We wanted to revisit the inspiring quotes shared, and remind ourselves that women who are role models and working on breaking the cycle of stereotypes in any and every field that does not portray equal participation, should be celebrated everyday.

It’s a known fact that equality brings the power of choice, and more #women than ever are choosing an exciting career in the field of #Tech#Cyber to #BreakTheBias 

Our first powerful quote of the day was by SBRC’s CEO, Jude McCorry, who is leading by example and is an inspirational leader in the field of #STEM 

Imagine a world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination, a world where equality was celebrated and not questioned.

Here’s a thought-provoking quote by Ciara Mitchell, Head of Cyber, ScotlandIS, that makes you question the preconceived notions & unconscious biases we all live with.

In order to achieve a fair and gender equal society, we all need to work together and unlearn the stereotypes and biases.

Is it true that women and girls continue to be excluded from participating fully in #STEM?

Not only today, but everyday of the year, we must recognise, acknowledge and celebrate women’s contribution to the furthering of our society.

We strongly do.
