Why are there so few women in some disciplines of sciences and engineering (SG)? What can we do to change the numbers? How can we improve the inclusion and well-being of female students in these disciplines? Why should we care? In this presentation, we will explore these questions.

Through her life, from a young child to an adult on the labor market, a woman encounters some barriers that may prevent her from studying in SG or from having a happy and successful career in SG. As parents, teachers, colleagues or employers, we can take some actions to reduce or eliminate these barriers. And, although dealing with diversity is often uncomfortable, it is worth.
