* Gender_en_STEM (dutch)

Contents

General

Objectives of this Dutch Network are:

  • to gain more insight into the various, closely connected aspects of career choices and professional careers of girls/women (and boys/men) in the direction of STEM;
  • to detect new approaches to actually improve the underrepresentation of girls/women in STEM.

Background

  • website, august 2013
  • VHTO, the Dutch national expert organisation on girls/women and science/technology makes an effort in many different ways to increase the involvement of women and girls in science and technology in The Netherlands.

In 2007, Associate Professor Helen Watt from Monash University Australia was invited as a keynote speaker at a VHTO conference. Our discussions centred about the very many research studies and findings concerning gender and STEM participation, but also that different studies tend to focus on one or few aspects. We agreed it would have surplus value if relevant research results of the last few years could be interrelated, in order to be able to gain a more coherent view concerning gender and STEM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Mathematics) from childhood to labour market. With this in mind, together we have formed our Network on this subject with members who undertake related research.
