Gender Gap and Barriers to Researchers’ Career of Women in STEAM
ICoRSA representatives participate today at the workshop ‘Gender Gap and Barriers to Researchers’ Career of Women in STEAM’ organised by the Italian Research Staff Association (ItalianRSA) and Marie Curie Alumni Association (MCAA) Gender Equity Diversity and Inclusion Working Group and Italy Chapter.
The workshop aims to explore the role of two concepts and their effect on social justice for women in STEAM: a culture of discrimination that is hidden in plain sight; and the wall of silence surrounding meaningful challenges to this culture. It will also point out and understand the role of Identities (intersectionality) and stereotypes that break through the hidden STEAM culture that prevents women’s career opportunities. It will address the gender stereotypes as well as the barriers that women in STEAM are facing. The gender gap in science is already happening at such an early age. The stereotype of study, where maths, physics, and computing are seen as male subjects for study. How does this happen? How can a subject have a gender associated with it?
Finally, the workshop will introduce the Gender Equity Diversity and Inclusion (GEDI) WG of Marie Curie Alumni Association (MCAA) and concludes with a session on how to write a Marie Curie individual fellowship for the target group of students and post-doc Researchers at the University of Bari and will discuss the Gender Gap in the recommendations of Women20, the engagement group of G20 on Gender Equality. The networking among the several research associations involved in the Workshop is then facilitated by a presentation of each association in the final session.
