A desk study research design is commonly known as secondary data collection. This is basically collecting data from existing resources preferably because of its low cost advantage as compared to a field research. Our current study looked into already published studies and reports as the data was easily accessed through online journals and libraries.</p> <p><strong>Findings:</strong> In recent years, progress has been made in increasing the representation and participation of women and gender minorities across various fields. Despite these advancements, gender disparities persist due to ongoing barriers such as discrimination and unequal opportunities. Efforts to promote diversity and inclusion through initiatives like gender quotas and mentorship programs are crucial in addressing these challenges and achieving true gender equality..</p> <p><strong>Unique Contribution to Theory, Practice and Policy:</strong> Social construction theory, intersectionality theory &amp; feminist theory may be used to anchor future studies on the representation and participation of women and gender minorities in various fields and domains. In practice, efforts are directed towards implementing strategies that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in each domain. Policy interventions play a crucial role in institutionalizing and sustaining efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion.</p> 2024-02-26T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Moses Rowan
