by Impactpool

Impactpool is hosting a unique 5-hour online career event to empower Women with unique STEM-related skills. Science, Technology, Engineering, Data Science

Join the virtual event to chat directly with the HR representatives and join live group career workshops and presentations. Apply for vacancies and explore valuable employer information from some of the most important and forward-thinking organizations in the world. 

Register to engage with HR recruiters at 9 international organizations -  The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), CERN, WIPO, eu-LISA, The European Space Agency (ESA), European Southern Observatory (ESO), Eurocontrol, CISCO and CTBTO  as they actively support the sector in becoming more gender-equal.

Girls and women are systematically tracked away from science and math throughout their education, limiting their access, preparation and opportunities to go into these fields as adults. Women make up only 28% of the workforce in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), and men vastly outnumber women majoring in most STEM fields in college. The gender gaps are particularly high in some of the fastest-growing and highest-paid jobs of the future, like computer science and engineering. We are hosting this event to help women who pursue such careers to engage with the world's leading international organizations who work for a positive impact in the world.

Key factors perpetuating gender STEM gaps:

  • Gender Stereotypes: STEM fields are often viewed as masculine, and teachers and parents often underestimate girls’ math abilities starting as early as preschool.
  • Male-Dominated Cultures: Because fewer women study and work in STEM, these fields tend to perpetuate inflexible, exclusionary, male-dominated cultures that are not supportive of or attractive to women and minorities.
  • Fewer Role Models: girls have fewer role models to inspire their interest in these fields, seeing limited examples of female scientists and engineers in books, media and popular culture. There are even fewer Black women role models in math and science.
  • Math Anxiety: Teachers, who are predominantly women, often have math anxiety they pass onto girls, and they often grade girls harder for the same work, and assume girls need to work harder to achieve the same level as boys. (Source -
