"How to create a culture for women in engineering"

Seminar abstract:

Nowadays, female scientists are an integral part of the scientific community. However, the scientific public scenery remains mostly male, regardless of the increase of women in these professions.
To establish a culture for women's visibility, a few steps are necessary.
The first one is recognizing barriers. Women (and thus society, therefore), face cultural and practical barriers to women's inclusion in public events. For example, women tend to refrain from identifying themselves as experts and to have their names quoted. This is a cultural trait that is mostly internalized and a consequence of our culture.
The second step towards gender inclusivity is establishing and applying policies and quotas for women in events. Typically, the quotas of women at conferences reflect the quotas of women in the industry.
Finally, for women to overcome practical difficulties, enabling actions are recommended.
