The 11 Best Jobs for Women in 2015

NEW YORK ( TheStreet ) -- When it comes to careers, it's not always a man's world. In fact, in some industries, it's quite the opposite.

A new report from job search portal  has identified the best jobs for women in 2015. While some of the fields identified aren't surprising -- public relations, event planning, and human resources -- others aren't as obvious. For example, opportunities for women in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and health care are on the rise as well.

Of course, it's no secret that the working world isn't always the friendliest to women. A significant wage gap between men and women persists:  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics , the median wage for women was 82% of the median wage earned by men in 2013. Some of the most innovative companies in the world, including Google , Apple and Facebook , leave much to be desired terms of gender diversity -- even though gender-diverse companies are 15% more likely to financially outperform the national industry median .

Nevertheless, there are plenty of opportunities out there. Here is a look at 11 of the best jobs for women in 2015.

Region's kids are healthier eaters

HEALTHY GUMS A new pilot programme is helping to improve dental health among children in the Marlborough region. A two-year partnership between the Nelson Marlborough District Health Board and the Marlborough Kindergarten Association will involve more than 400 children at seven kindergartens. Children will brush their teeth each day under the supervision of a kindergarten teacher as part of the programme, which was launched last week at Mayfield Kindergarten. The daily tooth-brushing project will involve two six-week blocks over the course of a year. Mayfield Kindergarten head teacher Kathryn Richards said the project made children less reluctant to brush their teeth at home.
