 If you couldn’t attend the webinar “International Day of Women and Girls in Science: how are Arqus universities contributing”, it is now available on the Arqus YouTube channel.

Every 11th February, the International Day of Women and Girls in Science is celebrated worldwide, with the aim of recalling the preponderant role played by women and girls in scientific and technical domains, and that their participation should be reinforced.

On this occasion, the Arqus Alliance organized an open webinar in order to promote the members’ actions to raise awareness among young girls about STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and to address questions of intersectionality and gender equality.

This was the programme (times remain for viewers to be able to find the part of interest more easily)
