Date:3/7/2013

ain severely under-represented in degree programs for these fields (less than 30% in most countries), and 20% in Brazil.
  • The representation of females in bio and health sciences enrollment is also low in the country, at 28%. In addition, the numbers of women actually working in these fields are declining across the board in all countries at 18% in Brazil.
  • Even in countries where the numbers of women studying science and technology have increased, it has not translated into more women in the workplace.
  • The numbers of women professional and technical workers in Brazil are comparatively high, fluctuating between 53 and 63% over the last decade, although this category includes communications, arts and athletic as well as technical professions.
  • The number of IT workers is less, at 33%, but the highest of all the countries studied. Brazil also sees among the highest percentage of female-run businesses with more than one employee, at 28%, and comparatively high levels of management participation (45%), with low representation at the highest decision making levels in the corporate and science sector at approximately 8%.

    Two Brazilian researchers involved in the study, Maria Coleta Oliveira, from the State University of Campinas, and Alice Abreu from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, explain that Brazil has implemented a substantial number of policies and programs supporting women's education at all levels, including science engineering and technology, "However impressive the results in the last 10 years are, women in Brazil are nevertheless still not well represented at the decision making levels of the science and technology system. They remain a minority in engineering, physics and computer sciences, and have low participation in the knowledge society workforce. Even more creative actions will have to be developed to focus on these next steps, so that Brazil can fully profit from the investment it is making." noted Alice Abre
