Research has shown the challenges women face in the STEM fields, even though there are benefits. Therefore, knowing the challenges can help better prepare females for careers in STEM and help with policymaking. In this chapter, the authors have highlighted the impact of remote learning in STEM and how to increase women's representation and STEM on college students. They recognize that interventions are needed to help recruit and retain women in STEM fields, and female role models are required. Therefore, having a diverse workforce culture is vital, and removing the gender stereotypes associated with women in STEM is critical for the future of women's interest and employment in STEM fields.
