Together with the Bristol University in the UK and CINOP, UNESCO-UNEVOC conducted a study on Boosting gender equality in science and technology. A challenge for TVET programmes and careers. The report that was published last week, examines the key issues concerning girls and women’s participation and achievement in STEM-related TVET programmes and their transition STEM related careers. STEM covering the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics professional field. On the occasion of the launching of this report, CINOP will facilitate this week the UNESCO-UNEVOC virtual conference.

The UNESCO-UNEVOC virtual conference aims to facilitate the exchange among worldwide TVET practitioners, policy makers and stakeholders in order to:

  • Share findings from the UNESCO-UNEVOC study on Boosting gender equality in science and technology. A challenge for TVET programmes and careers
  • Explore the individual, parental/peer, school-level and societal influences on girls’ and women’s enrolment, learning achievement and progression to STEM-related occupations
  • Collect insights from TVET stakeholders and policymakers on the barriers for girls and women within STEM-related TVET and the change-maker role that TVET institutions and teachers can play
  • Identify areas of successful practice in increasing the participation and performance of girls and women in STEM-related TVET, and initiatives to improve the participation of women in STEM-related occupations

The virtual conference will take place on the UNESCO-UNEVOC TVET Forum. You will need to have a UNEVOC account to participate. You can register for a UNEVOC account here.
