NGO CSW65 Parallel Event – Empowering Women in STEM is Essential for Achieving the UN SDGs

March 20, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

WFEO, the International Network for Women Engineers and Scientists (INWES) and the International Science Council (ISC), which together represent women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) across 100 nations, will organize the CSW65 (Commission on the Status of Women) parallel event “Empowering Women in STEM is Essential for Achieving the UNSDGs” on Saturday 20th March, at 2pm CET.

Join to discuss why it is important to empower women to take part in all areas of STEM. Gender equality is essential for business growth, for innovation, for the knowledge economy, for achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The talks in this CSW65 Parallel Event will cover the diversity imperative; the gender gap in mathematical, computing and natural sciences; developing capacities in Africa; and leadership. These will be followed by a moderated discussion session. You are encouraged to bring your questions, your experiences, your ideas to share.
