Celebrating Women in STEM
The Office of Diversity and Climate in partnership with Women in STEM (WiSTEM) invite you to learn about the career journeys of female scientists in Qatar and beyond. A panel of female scientists will discuss their roles in STEM, not only as beneficiaries, but also as agents of change.
More about the panel discussion:
Women accounted for one in three (33%) researchers in 2018. They have achieved parity (in numbers) in life sciences in many countries and even dominate this field, in some cases. However, women remain a minority in digital information technology, computing, physics, mathematics and engineering. We need to recognize the role of women and girls in STEM, not only as beneficiaries, but also as agents of change, including in view of accelerating progress towards achievements in STEM.
