THE ROLE OF EDUCATION IN AN INCLUSIVE INNOVATIVE ECONOMY

A.M. Imafidon

Stemettes (UNITED KINGDOM)
Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths industries, collectively known as STEM (or MINT auf Deutsch) are driving a big economic boom in countries like the UK. Making up increasing proportions of GDP, and with ever higher levels of tech investment these companies are becoming more and more ubiquitous. Technology is used by many governments and public services and citizens also now need to be more digitally literate to contribute to society. In what is seen by many as a particularly forward looking and forward thinking sector, STEM still suffers from a diversity problem. Imafidon will talk about why it's important to have a representative force, steps to take and the role of educators as well as wider society in increasing participation.
