Explore Resources and Materials on Gender Equality in STI

The Observatory houses a wide range of reports, policy briefs, videos and infographics shared by stakeholders supporting gender mainstreaming in STI.

Awakening and flourishing women's careers and vocations in STI through international gender equality awareness

The content and strategies designed to encourage female careers in STI have been oriented independently to specific programs for childhood, mentorship at universities, and collective support actions for women's careers in STI (W-IEEE, ACM-W, W-HPC, Latinas in Computing, etc.) The statistics show a gap between girls and young adults joining STI and the number of women deciding to build lifelong STI careers worldwide. The strategies and actions are often not global and too specific. The suspicion is that there is an existent gap not addressed by actions, thus, this prototype aims to build bridges between GirlsLead@STI to WomenLead@STI by studying and understanding these actions at an international level.

Actions to be implemented

1) Study of existing digital content about female careers empowerment

2) Exhibiting the limitations of content and strategies that have prevented further empowering female careers in STI in a broader dimension

3) Propose new digital content to create awareness about bridging the gap between GirlsLead@STI and WomenLead@STI.
