Delegates attending the 2017 Congress shared their feedback after the congress:

“STEM Gender Equality Congress in Berlin on 8-9 June 2017 was another important step in our efforts to make gender equality a reality in the 21st century so that girls everywhere can study STEM subjects and women can attain the highest levels in STEM careers. I thank the organizers for bringing together such a diverse, committed and knowledgeable group of experts. It was a wonderful opportunity to exchange information, learn from and inspire each other.”

Director, Division for Gender Equality, Office of the Director-General, UNESCO

“For me, the greatest value of the conference was the diversity of presenters, including representatives from countries around the world and from institutions that included academia, industry, government, and NGOs.  Many of the challenges to STEM gender equity are shared across that range of institutions, and learning more of the diverse strategies to address those challenges was highly instructive.”
