Jobs and passions
It was a really different experience to the other projects. We built up a good relationship with the girls and it was an opportunity for collective growth. - Giovanni, 16
The percentage of women in technical and scientific jobs in Italy is one of the lowest of the OECD countries: 31.7% of women against 68.9% of men. Without concrete action, it seems improbable that this will improve, with just 5% of 15-year-old girls in Italy aspiring to enter a technical or scientific profession (data from the OECD, ISTAT and Eurostat).
Confirmation of these stats is provided by the fact that female enrolment in Italy’s technical colleges is down (average of 7% at the Istituto Galilei – Luxemburg in Milan).
