Women drive economic growth when given greater opportunity to participate equally in the labor force and can serve as growth accelerators.
When gender equality is present in the labor market, work in society is distributed rationally between all the genders based on aptitude and skill.
Being a serial entrepreneur is a ride not many will opt. But those who do won't have it any other way.
In a world where the rate of female computer science graduates is declining at an alarming rate, the number of women enrolling in technical courses at universities has also seen a dramatic decline- which further impacts the motivation of women already involved in STEM vocations.
