Margarete Schramböck (Federal Minister for Digital and Economic Affairs), Gloria Katharina Wagner (Graduate in Business, Research on factors for the lack of women in the IT), Mahdis Gharaei (Co-Founder, The Female Factor) and Ruba Abu Isa (Alumna, Talent Garden Innovation School) will share their personal and professional experiences and discuss about the topic of education and career opportunities for women in the STEM industries (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).
We are looking forward to this one-hour discussion on solutions and educational paths open to men and especially women. We dive into questions like:
-> What patterns are behind the underrepresentation of women in IT?
-> How can the old patterns of thinking among young women be broken down and new opportunities created?
– Only 25% women are employed in the STEM professions in Europe
– Female graduates account for less than 25% of all technical university degrees in Austria
– Individuals act according to stereotypes (e.g. „women are bad at mathematics“)
– Self-underestimation: Girls and women rate themselves much worse in computer skills and mathematics than boys and men despite equal performance
– There are only few female role models in IT that serve as role models for girls and women
