Nearshore software and technology companies are actively pursuing the same gender equality goals as their global counterparts, but there are still educational burdens that are failing the industry’s ambitions in the region – namely, a female lack of interest in STEM.

According to a UNESCO study, the gender gap in Latin America and the Caribbean is largely in favor of boys when it comes to mathematics in secondary education.
