Gender Equity in Schools – a whole school approach

GECM project logo

Gender stereotyping and sexism has a huge impact on students’ experiences, negatively affecting the career aspirations of boys and girls.
Only 8% of STEM apprentices are women.
58% of girls aged 14 – 21 have been sexually harassed in their learning environment.
