Mind the Gap: Tackling the Funding Challenge for Gender Equity and Strengthening the belief in women in STEM

Although the proportion of women in STEM professions is increasing, there is still an enormous amount of unused female potential. The reasons for this are often well-known, such as shorter involvement in working life due to part-time jobs and maternity leave, a lack of knowledge about the prospects of all these occupational fields, possibly also a lack of courage to take up one of these professions, and many more. However, the credo must be: break down old role clichés, offer opportunities, use talents, play a decisive role in shaping the future. On this panel, we would like to discuss the possibilities, measures and the elimination of societal disruptive factors that could bring a larger share of women into STEM professions in the future.
