Middle Eastern Women Excel in STEM Careers
While most observant Muslim communities are associated with strict social codes for women and men, Western gender stereotypes about the workplace don’t apply. Many Muslim countries have filled over half of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) positions with female employees. Saadia Zahidi, an executive who leads education and gender equality initiatives, said in several cases, Muslim females are pioneering their role in the workplace, so there aren’t preconceived stereotypes about if tech jobs are considered a “feminine” career choice.

There is a vast economic potential when bringing more women into the workplace. A Women in the Workplace report shows that equalizing workforce participation between men and women would produce 47 percent economic growth in the Middle Eastern area alone. In countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, and in the Gulf region, Zahidi says that cell phones are playing a role in helping women to access new opportunities, bypassing traditional employment for the gig economy.
