Contents

General

  • Dutch National Expert Organisation on Girls/Women and Science/Technology

Background

Since the early 1980s, VHTO has been building up knowledge and experience of the participation of girls and women in the world of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and deploying this expertise in areas such as education.

abstract

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, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Although research over the past decade has made clear that girls are no less talented than boys in STEM, girls and women are still underrepresented in these fields in education and on the labour market. This is inconvenient for both girls/women and for society. Girls/women have equal rights as boys/men to develop their STEM talents, and society would benefit from fully exploiting all available talent. VHTO participates in a great variety of international projects and networks and uses knowledge gained from working with partners abroad to bring best practice into the Netherlands as well as sharing Dutch experiences with international relations.
