noting the present shortage in many countries of certain categories of university graduates, and, in nearly every country, a shortage, to a greater or lesser degree, of secondary school teachers (especially in mathematics, science and languages), and of engineers and often of doctors, mathematicians, economists and scientific research workers:
observing that a need is frequently indicated for university graduates who are highly qualified and specialised in certain scientific disciplines and professional categories;
recommends to NFAs:
- to keep themselves as up to date as possible with the needs and employment possibilities for graduates in their country,
- to bring this information to public notice, drawing particular attention to the great shortage of graduates in scientific and technical fields, and the need to do away with prejudices against the employment of women in certain professions requiring university training,
- and further to do all in their power to encourage young women to pursue their studies to a high degree of competence and specialisation.
