Programs for Training in Biotechnology and Training Women in Bioscience and Biotechnology Careers

As the 21st Century gears up towards becoming more technologically advanced, the role of education and training in biotechnology is becoming more pronounced than ever. Virtually, every industry uses technology and requires a workforce skilled in the sciences, engineering, computers, mathematics, and likewise in biotechnology.

Increasingly, the number of career positions available that require a background in the aforementioned fields is very high, especially in bioscience/biotechnology. However, the demand and supply of skilled individuals are greatly imbalanced, and there is a disparity in the numbers of men and women applying for these career positions.

Historically, women were not trained for the workforce. In addition, it is a rarity to find women in the biotechnology/scientific fields, especially in developing countries. Traditionally, more men have been trained for positions in these fields. Only since the past 10-15 years, women are being trained for the workforce and for the scientific arenas.

However, because of the lack of resources, especially in the developing countries, not enough women are entering the scientific workforce. Some of the reasons for that include societal pressures, inability to shake off traditional beliefs, cultural stereotyping, etc. These reasons inevitably reduce women’s access to career positions and high paying status.
