Breaking down inequalities in STEM
Thursday, 17 June 2021
18:30h - 20:00h




The YEBN is joining forces with Young it Girls, PRISMA, and La fédé 100% Handinamique, to host an unprecedented event focused on inclusion in sciences.

Together, we are happy to announce the event "Breaking down inequalities in STEM"!

The programme consists of 3 round tables that will take place throughout the year, and in which we will discuss critical equality issues that still nowadays affect women, LGTBIQA+ and people with disabilities. Thanks to the experiences of our speakers, we will face the daily challenges that a great number of people in the STEM fields, from academia to industry, go through. The ultimate goal of the event is to analyze the main reasons behind all forms of discrimination and how to best break them down.
