This session will feature inspirational women charting the path in STEAMD, but also those drawn from humanities and other non-STEAMD backgrounds on how the latter also matters in the STEAMD discourse. Speakers will be drawn from various fields, and will be invited to reflect on their journeys, triumphs and tribulations — and how to involve more women and girls in STEAMD, with an eye to the role of the public sector in advancing this aim. 
Cette session mettra en vedette des femmes inspirantes qui tracent la voie dans STIAMD, mais aussi celles issues des milieux des sciences humaines et d’autres disciplines non STIAMD sur la manière dont cette dernière est également importante dans le discours STIAMD. Les conférenciers proviendront de divers domaines, y compris la santé et l'éducation, et seront invités à réfléchir à leurs voyages, à leurs triomphes et à leurs tribulations - et à impliquer davantage de femmes et de filles dans STIAMD, en tenant compte du rôle du secteur public. faire avancer ce but.
