Women in STEM-related industries across Southeast Asia face a variety of challenges that reduce entry, retention and advancement in these industries.  First, for a variety of reasons fewer women tend to enter the vocational training programmes related to these sectors.  Second, those that do often face challenges of placement vis a vis their male counterparts, due to gender bias in the hiring processes of firms.  Once within firms, women employees in these industries are typically faced with challenges both within their firms and from societal expectations, resulting in a higher tendency to drop out higher rates than males.  And finally, they often are overlooked in terms of career advancement, at both the lower levels and with regard to their moving into senior managerial roles.  In general, there are a paucity of tools and approaches that systematically address these shortcomings in the STEM-related labour markets of the region. 
The ILO’s Women in STEM Workforce Readiness Program will attempt to address these issues, coupling demand-led technical STEM skills and employability and enterprise-level leadership training to transition: 1) underprivileged female secondary or post-secondary TVET graduates into sustainable entry-level STEM positions with career prospects; 2) under-employed women in STEM-related fields upgrade their skills to move up to mid-level STEM employment; and 3) mid-level women working in STEM fields into leadership/managerial roles.
Working in the Automotive sector in Indonesia – these efforts will develop and institutionalize industry tools that will be integrated into the training programmes and human resource practices of training institutions supporting and firms in STEM-related industries.  The project will seek to strengthen linkages between private sector firms in STEM sectors, social partner institutions and vocational training centres to ensure greater opportunity through higher entry, retention and advancement of women workers in STEM related positions.
