According to statistics from the United Nations, Singapore is within group 1 in the Gender Development Index (GDI) which comprises of countries with high equality between men and women. Impressively, women make up 41 per cent of Singapore’s tech professionals and 65.3 per cent of the student intake for the  NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine. In other areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), female scientists have been recognised for their innovative research and making great strides in breaking stereotypes in their respective fields.

The International Women in STEM and Medicine Symposium, graced by Ms Sun Xueling (seventh from left) as the Guest-of-Honour, aims to recognise efforts and call out the opportunities for action to further empower women in STEM and Medicine. Ms Sun was accompanied by NUS President Prof Tan Eng Chye (sixth from left), other speakers, and members of the organising team.

Despite these progressive and promising results from efforts over the years, women in STEM and Medicine are still lacking in representation in leadership positions, and many may not stay long in their fields. This was the crux of the International Women in STEM and Medicine Symposium held on 13 March 2023.
