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. The project for 2021-2022 has been approved to focus on 4 industries: Press & Media, Healthcare, Retails & Beauty & Education.
Education has been selected to be our next industry. Gender equality is the 5th goal among UN's 17 sustainable development goals by 2030, and this matter has been long discussed within the Education system across the globe. According to the Ministry of Education and Training, the percentage of women is higher than men in the process of working in the field of Education. The contingent of female teachers is almost absolute at the kindergarten level; accounting for about 70% of the upper secondary level; nearly 50% of university and college lecturers. On the other hand, women and LGBTQ+ members have less authority at higher levels of management. Furthermore, depending on the field of study, there will be a significant gender disparity. For instance, the IT industry is frequently dominated by men, resulting in an imbalance. At GEAI, we do not stop only at women empowerment, but rather focus on gender equality and diversity. It covers any gender minority presenting in a certain industry, regardless if they are men, women, or LGBTQ+. Joining the panel discussion, the audience can hear the diverse voices from the stakeholders, as well as to see a broader picture to the gender equality matter in the Vietnam market for Education.
