The scientists, technologists, engineers, mathematicians and other professionals who work in STEM areas develop research projects, create applications, manage companies and make discoveries that are essential to the progress and transformation of the world.
However, not only are the STEM vocations insufficient, but women represent a very small percentage in these: women comprise half of the population but only occupy 25% of jobs related to STEM sectors.
For this reason it is vital to encourage STEM vocations among girls in particular in order to promote talent 4.0 and leadership that is not influenced by gender in STEM areas that contribute to the demand of digital, scientific and technological profiles that are key for industry 4.0 and the digital transformation of our economy.
I think it's very important to encourage talent. For me, this initiative is an opportunity to encourage STEM girls to study what they really like.
It seems to me a great initiative to offer a closer vision of science and engineering and to promote the talent of girls and young people.
It is an opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of women, to believe in themselves and in the goals they are able to achieve with determination, dedication and enthusiasm.
