This Roundtable discussion invites students, professionals and executives to join a discussion with women working in leading positions of the technology and engineering domain.

Our speakers will share their experiences and personal choices, debate what can be done to promote STEM studies (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) among young girls, how this field provides attractive career paths for female professionals, and what can be done to remove preceived and real obstacles.

This event is one of a series of events and activities organized by the EBU to mark International Women's Day.
