- How can the private sector promote STEM skills development which could serve as an
engine for youth employment and as consequence poverty eradication worldwide?
- How can young people with STEM skills help their communities achieve peace and bring
positive social change?
- Though it is interesting to observe that young women and girls with STEM jobs earn 33%
more than comparable women and girls in non-STEM jobs, still why do they often make
less money than men and only few are in leadership positions? What steps need to be
taken to close the gap in the job market? What can be done to eliminate the negative
stereotype about girls' technical skills and abilities?
- How can we maximize the impact that [young] social entrepreneurs operating in STEM are
having, particularly in the development of resilient and peaceful communities?
