Traditional views still colouring career choices

Traditional views still colouring career choices

A survey of 2,000 British patents and children aged six to 16 by easyJet found more than half of young girls would consider a STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) career.


However, 51% of those children surveyed said they believed their career choices were restricted by traditional views of “men’s” and “women’s” jobs, just 15% better than their parents’ response (16%), which easyJet said showed how little the situation had changed in a generation.


Captain David Morgan, easyJet director of flight operations, added: “We want our people to reflect the diversity of the customers we fly and the communities in which we operate, so encouraging more girls and women to take on this hugely rewarding career is an integral part of this.”
