Network Gender & STEM

The conferences and special issues are an initiative of the “Network Gender & STEM: Educational and occupational pathways and participation”. The Network conferences have marked the beginning of a more coherent way of exchanging information, as collectively we work to find new ways to implement research findings in both policy and practice.

Members of the Network share the objectives of:

  • gaining greater insight into the various connected aspects of career choices and professional careers of girls/women (and boys/men) in the direction of STEM;
  • detecting new approaches to improve and address the underrepresentation of girls/women in STEM.
