The Chronicles of WCC
This is hopefully post one, of many which narrates the journey of women in society from being thought of as delicate princesses who need saving, to the scientists of tomorrow.
Let's start of with a simple introduction to who we are and why we are here.
My name is Jana Jhaveri, and I am a Grade 12 student from Mumbai, India. Let me tell you a bit about where my story starts...
While looking up Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) courses and coding clubs one afternoon, I came across a statistic that shook me and for many days I wondered if it was really true. Unfortunately, after much research I found it was, and this was - that there is a mere 14% of Women who are employed researchers in India, whilst there was 43% female graduates in STEM. This made me ponder about the opportunities that are present for women in the STEM field post education and studying and it was this nagging thought, that something has to change which lead to the culmination of World Can Code.
At World Can Code, my aim is to teach and encourage women in India to pursue careers in STEM and help women in STEM to flourish and grow, and I hope you join me in this endeavor!
