#WomenInStem – on the power of women’s networks

The GÉANT 2022 Women in STEM campaign continues with a new episode on the topic of women’s networks.

What is a women’s network? A group of like-minded women coming together to exchange resources, knowledge, and connections to peers with similar challenges. It is a platform with a crucial role in helping young girls and women shape their careers in STEM.

We were interested in hearing first-hand examples of why these networks are so powerful and how they have supported women in our community, so we asked four international members – this time, women only! – with very different professional and personal backgrounds. We spoke to women in the fields of software development, security and data protection, from Portugal to India, through Moldova and Malawi.
