The realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the effectiveness of Sustainable Development Plans depend significantly on the adoption of innovative and contemporary ideas, as well as cutting-edge technologies. This is particularly crucial when addressing challenges like decarbonizing the economy to reduce the impacts of climate change. Information and communication technologies offer distinctive opportunities and solutions across various sectors, promoting enhanced transparency and efficiency when utilized effectively.

According to this reality, The UN 2030 Agenda states, “We resolve, between now and 2030, to end poverty and hunger everywhere; to combat inequalities within and among countries; to build peaceful and just, and inclusive societies; … and to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.” These goals also address the need to ensure the lasting protection of the planet and its natural resources.

Even equal representation  of Women and men is crucial to deal with polycrisis of today. However, UNESCO report found that the time it will take to close the worldwide gender gap has increased by a generation from 99.5 to 135.6 years in 2021.

The fourth industrial revolution, often referred to as Industry 4.0, is marked by remarkable technological advancements and a pervasive shift towards digitalization. The convergence of the physical, digital, and biological realms is occurring swiftly. While this era holds immense potential and excitement for the future, it is imperative that we progress in a unified and inclusive manner. Women should take a leading role in driving this revolution, and a commitment to equality is essential for its success.

Throughout human history, comprehension of the world, navigation through uncertainty, and the human perception of the universe have been shaped by the advancements in science and technology. In the 17th century, Newton’s Physics played a pivotal role, while the 18th century saw the dominance of Chemistry, particularly in the study of gases. The 20th century witnessed the domination of quantum physics, especially post-1905, and the subsequent decades highlighted the significance of biology, starting in the 1950s.

As we step into the 21st century, characterized by digitalization, it is clear our economy is set to be dominated by STEM industries at the heart of technology advancements, such as engineering and computer science. These fields collectively assume the role of an icebreaker, breaking through the uncertainties of our time.

Moreover, these industries are projected to foster the fastest growth and highest paid jobs of the future. Research  has found that a typical STEM worker already earns over double the amount of a non-STEM worker, and this trend is only set to continue.

Todos los cambios sociales comienzan con las herramientas creativas creadas por la ciencia y la tecnología. Una de las tecnologías que cambian la vida que comúnmente se conoce como la píldora que se introdujo en 1960 y esta fue la píldora anticonceptiva que cambia el mundo para las mujeres. La píldora fue el instrumento que por primera vez en la historia las mujeres pudieron asumir su identidad sexual sin temor a embarazos no deseados. La píldora da a las mujeres el control sobre sus cuerpos y, por lo tanto, sus vidas.

La realización de los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible (ODS) y la eficacia de los Planes de Desarrollo Sostenible dependen significativamente de la adopción de ideas innovadoras y contemporáneas, así como de tecnologías de vanguardia. Esto es particularmente crucial cuando se abordan desafíos como la descarbonización de la economía para reducir los impactos del cambio climático.

Por lo tanto, a medida que las industrias STEM asumen un papel crítico en nuestra progresión y resolución de problemas sociales.  Es crucial transformar el paisaje, asegurando que las mujeres y las niñas dejen de ser una minoría y, en cambio, estén bien representadas en todos los niveles. Las industrias STEM son impulsadas por el intelecto y la autoestima en lugar de la fuerza física, la identidad de género no debe ser un factor determinante en los campos STEM. La prioridad urgente es eliminar los sesgos estereotipados en la ingeniería y ofrecer un fuerte apoyo a las niñas que aspiran a seguir estudios y carreras en campos STEM.

Al igual que en el sector de los oficios calificados, hay empleos bien remunerados en STEM, pero las mujeres y las niñas siguen estando infrarrepresentadas en el sector a nivel mundial.
