ATHENA for Girls in ICT Day 2022

Many initiatives for the integration of women in STEM fields, #GirlsinICT being one of them, have been actively expanding and developing in recent years. They play a vital role in gender equality as they contribute to the advancement of women in STEM fields. Initiatives that have introduced and proposed guidelines for integrating women in STEM fields are presented in the article Analysis of guidelines for involving more women students and researchers in STEM fields written by Lucija Brezočnik, Tatjana Welzer Družovec and Lili Nemec Zlatolas. The article is in the Slovenian language, so we are publishing the translated abstract below.

We invite you to read the abstract below and the article available at this link (using a translation service): By taking part in presented initiatives and applying the guidelines to our professions, we can all tackle gender stereotypes and make STEM disciplines more inclusive and balanced.

Analysis of guidelines for involving more women students and researchers in STEM fields, abstract:

STEM fields are often still perceived as male fields, which in turn influences girls’ choices of study. In an effort to tackle such stereotypes, the European Parliament has adopted a strategic directive to support women’s empowerment in the digital world. Among other things, diverse groups with different perspectives have been shown to be much more successful in solving problems. However, as this is only one of the initiatives that have emerged in recent years, this article presents the analysed guidelines for women’s involvement in STEM fields based on the objectives set by each organisation and association.
