As you have perhaps already seen elsewhere, we have the distinct honor of now holding the Belgian Chair for the European Centre for Women and Technology network. And, as our first autonomous activity in this role, we will launch a quarterly “Women 2020” Luncheon Series in Brussels which aims to achieve the following:
- Showcase women role models in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields in Europe;
- Promote these sectors as excellent study and career options for young women; and
- Create a dialogue about the contribution of women in STEM to achieving the Europe 2020 strategy.
We already have some outstanding women in STEM to get the initiative off to a great start, and over the course of the coming months, we plan to run several such events. So if you would like to contribute to the Women2020 initiative — as a speaker, sponsor or attendee for the lunch series, as a stakeholder to the discussion, or if you’d just like to give your time to this very worthy undertaking — please don’t hesitate to contact me.
More details on timing, location and registration coming soon!
