Although women are successful in gaining qualifications, their subsequent careers are often more interrupted, they have lower pay and their careers are flatter. As a consequence, they earn less than men over their life cycle, and their pensions are lower. The gender pay gap is often moving in the opposite direction from the gender employment gap.

Mother caring for her child does end up teaching that child many things. If she works in a university as a professor, she's teaching students. Since the work is, in a sense, analogous (and yet sufficiently different to enable exploration of different perspectives), can't caring for a child be accepted as equivallent to some training, improvement of qualification?

Nowadays, gender equality is more seen as a women's issue. Many actions are focused to help and to involve women to be more active and change the situation of gender inequality at home or in a work place. However, is is not just a women's issue. Men should be encouraged to get involved in advocating for women's equality at work or at home.

Decision making process requires to take a responsibility and have a forsight for future changes and influences. Many organizations to reduce the negative influences that might occur after taking one or another decision, involve its' employees to help in this process. In the IT field, a majority of employees are men, so, the lack of women's insights are notable.

While creating a career plan, it is important to include all aspects of life to make it as detailed as possible. However, many women stuggle with this task as they have to consider many aspects that might make influence to their career plans.

Idea category (inherited from the related challenge): Gender stereotypes

In my opinion, stereotypes can not be erased, because they are basically created by people who are not very smart and want to self-affirm in this way. These people will be around forever and there is almost certainly no way to change their mind. Even now a lot of people assocciate different groups with old stereotypes because they need these stereotypes to feel better about themselfs.

I think that it is necessary to hold various events, lectures, master classes, where the organizers will be people who are not ordinary for such activities. For example, a master class on hand-made or a lecture on the upbringing of children should be conducted by a man, and a woman should tell about innovative technologies in the IT sphere.

We know that media (especially movies) draws a wrong picture of girls who are interested in ICT.

Regardless combining career and childcare (not education and childcare). This can be an unpopular opinion nowadays, but i think if a women wants both: a baby and a top career at the same time, that is the problem right here. I think that mother is one of the most important roles in a person's life and mother should be around at least until child goes to school.
