In time past, the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) was largely stereotyped in favour of the male gender. However, as we have experienced recently, times are changing, as diverse bodies – government and non-government alike – have taken on the responsibility to bridge this gap. Now, more females show interests, taking on roles in these areas. But to ensure that this gap is effectively bridged, more work still needs to be done, especially regarding access to funding, education and opportunities, for women to be able to explore these areas. FSDH Merchant Bank recently contributed its quota to bridging this gap.
