Why is it important for people of all backgrounds and genders to have equal opportunities in the workplace?
It's important because everyone deserves a fair chance to pursue their interests and talents without being held back by stereotypes or discrimination. When everyone has equal opportunities, society benefits from a wider pool of talent and ideas.
Have you ever encountered stereotypes about certain careers or jobs? How do these stereotypes affect people's career choices?
Yes, stereotypes can influence our beliefs about what we're "supposed" to be good at or interested in. For example, if someone believes that only boys are good at math, they might avoid pursuing a math-related career, even if they have the skills and interest.
Girls and boys should be encouraged and supported to think beyond gender stereotypes and explore the full range of future career options open to them.
