The Asia Foundation (28 June 2021) - Networks, both formal and informal, play a pivotal role in helping girls and women enter and succeed in STEM fields. They do this by facilitating peer support, role models, mentorship and sponsorship, opportunities for technical and soft skills development, knowledge exchange and collaboration, visibility, and more. This Asia Foundation report showcases the diversity of networks working to advance women’s participation and leadership in STEM in Southeast and East Asia, examines the successful—and often innovative—strategies these networks are using to achieve their missions, and highlights emerging lessons for developing, funding, and strengthening these networks.
