Gender equality across Vietnam industries

Gender equality across industries project (GEAI) is funded by the U.S. Consulate General, with the vision to raise public awareness in the "gender equality" issues, which have been existing across many fields and sectors in Vietnam. Since 2021, GEAI has raised awareness and empowered impacts in major industries: Media, Non-profits, Beauty & Fashion, Education, Journalism, Digital Games.

Gender inequality in education has profound repercussions on economic growth and sustainable development, particularly for nations and ethnicities unable to harness the full potential of their entire populace due to unequal educational opportunities. This disparity affects both men and women, hindering their ability to contribute effectively to society. Furthermore, gender imbalances in certain fields exacerbate inequalities in the labor market and employment opportunities.

For women, unequal access to education presents a significant barrier to entering professions requiring advanced academic qualifications and technical skills, thus limiting their potential for higher income and professional advancement. This is particularly concerning given the modern advancements in science and technology, where skilled labor is in high demand. As women lag behind in education and skill development, they face greater challenges in adapting to evolving work environments and enhancing labor efficiency. Consequently, this perpetuates a cycle of limited employment opportunities and restricted economic participation, further exacerbating income disparities.

The impact of gender inequality in education is particularly severe for marginalized communities, such as poor families and ethnic minorities, who face heightened financial burdens in accessing education. Poor infrastructure and geographical constraints compound these challenges, particularly for girls, who often face significant barriers in commuting to school. Additionally, entrenched gender biases within these communities, such as the belief that girls do not require extensive education, further exacerbate disparities in educational investment. Consequently, girls are disproportionately disadvantaged in terms of educational opportunities, employment prospects, and social integration.

Career guidance plays a critical role, especially with significant influence from Universities and Colleges. This March, GEAI will organize the training program for personnel working in career guidance: corporate relations, admissions, and student relations at domestic universities and colleges. At GEAI, we do not stop only at women empowerment, but rather focus on gender equality and diversity.
