The dialogue “Empowering Women in STEM” is a collaborative, interdisciplinary, and locally engaged initiative, designed to promote diversity and female presence in the STEM fields in Italy and Europe. The movement to increase female presence in the STEM fields has grown over the past several decades. However, the issue still remains and is underestimated. The stereotypes in today’s society make it hard for minorities to prove their qualification for jobs, having to agree to lower pay and even face sexual harassment at the workplace. Breaking stereotypes and holding truthful conversations is crucial in the process of raising awareness in society. The goal of “Empowering women in STEM” Dialogue in Florence is to step away from stereotypical images of the scientist, initiate a diverse and inclusive discussion, and share ways of getting involved in the movement. Respect and inclusion are the keys to fighting the problem of female underrepresentation in STEM.

Organized by: Yana Chala and Alice Huang, NYU Florence students
