Emirati women’s career choices: tales from information technology in the United Arab Emirates

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

There is widespread recognition of the global under-representation of women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). While several studies have examined the barriers and enablers for women in the West, there has to date been scant evidence of the factors that have enabled career choices for women working in these sectors in the Arab Middle East. This study draws on in-depth interviews with Emirati women working in Information Technology and provides insight into the challenges and enablers they have encountered in their choice to enter a career in STEM.
