After having imagined a world where women scientists were treated like celebrities, the new General Electric campaign goes back on these same values and once again promotes the group’s initiatives in trying to improve female representation in the science industries from tech, and engineering to mathematics (STEM). If by 2020 the company intends to employ 20 000 women and wishes to achieve gender parity in its different programs, “Meet Molly, the Kid Who Never Stops Inventing” particularly highlights General Electric’s mission.

More and more encouraging efforts are observed from the biggests – remember last year’s International Women’s Day campaign by Microsoft – which seem to focus on normalising women’s place in tech.
