Gender Inclusion in Ghana's Education has grown in the past and present through government intervention programs to promote STEM ( Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Education. The gender gap is around 8% for every girl to get access to resources and networks to promote their interest in digital, STEM, and leadership careers. Significant impact usually occurs when civil society organizations collaborate with public and private institutions to accelerate outcomes.
