How Can More Women and Girls Enter and Succeed in STEM Careers?

Washington DC - December 15th - RSVP Now

Across the developing world (and globally, really) there is a gender disparity in educational opportunities to study science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Simply, these are often seen as "male" pursuits.
Women and girls often have less access to STEM educational resources, and can be actively discouraged from progressing and excelling if they do. Even in the work world, women have fewer opportunities to enter and advance in STEM careers, and are often directly discouraged to reach higher levels in their career.
Please RSVP now to join in an active discussion on how we can increase educational opportunities and career success for women and girls in STEM in the developing world. We'll seek answers to questions like:
  • What are the barriers to women and girls educational opportunities in STEM?
  • How can we overcome them? What's worked, and what hasn't?
  • Where have women and girls had success in advanced STEM education? Why?
  • What are the pathways to gender-balanced STEM employment? The pitfalls?
  • Who is leading efforts to increase women and girls STEM education and employment? How can we help them?
Please RSVP now to join your peers and the following experts in gender, STEM, education, and employment: We’ll have hot coffee and catered breakfast treats for a morning rush, but seating is limited, so please RSVP now. Once we reach our 35-person capacity there will be a waiting list!

About the Technology Salon

The Technology Salonâ„¢ is an intimate, informal, and in person, discussion between information and communication technology experts and international development professionals, with a focus on both:
  • technology's impact on donor-sponsored technical assistance delivery, and
  • private enterprise driven economic development, facilitated by technology.
Our meetings are lively conversations, not boring presentations. Attendance is capped at 35 people - and frank participation with ideas, opinions, and predictions is actively encouraged. 

It's also a great opportunity to meet others motivated to employ technology to solve vexing development problems. Join us today!
