While STEM gender gap favours men, other fields see opposite imbalance: Attfield

December 15, 2017

While the gender gaps within STEM fields have been discussed and are a continuing concern, “it is far from the only gender gap disparity in this country,” writes Paul Attfield for the Globe and Mail. Attfield points to programs such as veterinary medicine and public relations as examples of those that are impacted by student ratios that are heavily skewed in favour of women. The article goes on to highlight Canadian PSE institutions and companies that are experiencing these gender gaps, the theorized causes of the gaps, and how the gender imbalance is being managed. Globe and Mail
