Ever wondered why STEM education and careers are not as diverse as they could be? Interested in finding out how we can help address STEM stereotypes? The webinar co-organized by STEM Alliance and Scientix ‘Tackling Stereotypes in STEM Education and Careers' took place on 4 October 2018. Diversity is an essential element for STEM innovation! STEM education and careers should be diverse and encourage inclusive representation of gender, economic and social backgrounds. Bringing diversity in STEM can also mean collaboration between educators, governments, industry and non-profit organisations.Find here the presentation used during the webinar.

  20. 20. © 2018 CA. Confidential. All rights reserved. Unconscious Bias: Explained Our brains use two systems (Conscious and Unconscious) to categorize people, places and things. These biases become hardwired within the human brain through the process of myelination. Conscious = slow, deliberate, objective Unconscious = fast, instinct, survival Biases are acquired: learned and shaped through our sociocultural experiences such as the media, our families and friends, our schools etc.

  31. 31. 31 What does my family think? Good in Math and interested in Science. But am I good enough? Your grades are too low to go to Technical University No they’re not! Go and try it! But all my schoolfriends don’t do STEM!! But I want to learn about geology Why not just do it? But I have no role models 4 October 2018

  33. 33. What does Shell do? 33 Our Vision To tackle the emerging global challenges such as the energy transition, young people must be given the opportunity to develop skills to equip them for the jobs of tomorrow and to be able to adapt in a rapidly changing world. The question we want to pose to young people is not “what do you want to be when you grow up?”, but “what problem do you want to solve?“ Equip Empower E n t h u s e To equip the next generation of innovators and problem solvers with the skills to lead the emerging energy transition Our Global Approach Empower young people, teachers and parents to overcome barriers. Equip young people with tools, skills and methodologies. Enthuse and inspire interest in STEM. 4 October 2018

  35. 35. International initiative: NXPLORERS – Shell`s Flagship Global STEM Programme 35 Equipping future generations with the tools, methodologies and skills to lead the energy transition “Young people, given the right support and guidance, will be crucial to creating sustainable solutions.” – Harry Brekelmans Projects & Technology Director and Executive Sponsor of STEM at Shell STEM Habits of Mind Skills such as problem solving, critical thinking and dealing with complexity are ever more important to enable people to better adapt in a rapidly changing world. These skills form the basis of the “STEM habits of mind”. They are becoming more commonly listed as the top skills employers are looking for in new recruits. NXplorers (www.nxplorers.com) “I believe that while intelligence and ambition is spread evenly across the globe, opportunity is not. NXplorers is our initiative that aims to redress this imbalance.” – Harry Brekelmans Projects & Technology Director and Executive Sponsor of STEM 4 October 2018
  36. 36. Bridging the gender gaps in STEM (and other stereotypes) Suggestions where to start: • Investigate your own unconscious bias. • Look for Role Models (close by or someone famous) • Open up the discussion, respect diversity, actively discuss in class • Go outside comfort zones to look for possibilities • Look for outside school initiatives to promote STEM careers and use them to your advantage. • Positive reaffirmation of STEM skills for all! 364 October 2018
