Project ID 2210265022

Over the last decade, different actors in the region, ranging from Governmental institutions and universities and research centres to civil society and international agencies as well as private companies have launched different types of initiatives aimed at reducing the gender gap in STEM. There is a need to highlight and coordinate these various initiatives existing in LAC, a space that UNESCO can occupy. That is why we plan, together with the Education sector, to map the main existing initiatives in the region and convene a meeting to coordinate actions to promote gender and STEM in the region.
