Every year, Girls Go Circular – in collaboration with the European Commission, Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture (DG EAC) – organises the Women and Girls in STEM Forum. The third edition of the Forum will take place on Tuesday, 5th December (9:30-13:00 CET), livestreamed from Brussels. This annual event has become a platform for leading voices of students, teachers, mentors, policymakers, researchers and industry working towards a truly equal and inclusive future of Europe. Over the past two years, the Women and Girls in STEM Forum has attracted over 1,500 participants to identify key actions to bridge the gender gap in STEM and ICT, dismantle gender stereotypes and empower girls to pursue career dreams in science and technology.
Girls and young women have a pivotal role in the event and inspire their peers and the audience, engaging in discussions on eliminating gender bias from STEM with EU policymakers, scientists, and entrepreneurs and sharing success stories to inspire the future EU action on these themes. The Women and Girls in STEM Forum also celebrates the participation of thousands of girls from 21 European countries in the Girls Go Circular project and offers them the opportunity to compete in a challenge and win a trip to Brussels to attend the Forum in person.
This EIT Community event is supported by EIT Climate-KIC, EIT Manufacturing, EIT RawMaterials, EIT Digital, EIT Health, EIT Food and EIT Urban Mobility.
