FAWEZI Presents: First Annual Women in STEM Forum

FAWEZI launched the ‘Women in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Forum’ on the 13th of February 2019 . The event was aimed at creating sustainability for FAWEZI STEM projects by mobilizing women in STEM to support and commit their time and or resources to promoting STEM for girls. The launch of the Forum was aligned to the International Day of Women and Girls in Science (11 February) which was run under the theme: “Investment in Women and Girls in Science for Inclusive Green Growth”. This day was also a time for FAWEZI to reflect on its work in enhancing women and girl’s participation in STEM. FAWEZI therefore used this opportunity to showcase its experience in advocating for the increase of girls in STEM and also to garner more support and resources for the cause. The event was reported on by Pachikoro, and Spiked, whose article can be found here and here respectively.
