Role Models

CALIPER project produces promotional videos to raise awareness and generate debate about the gender inequality issues in STEM fields. The interviewees are role models, whose remarkable personalities, achievements, and positive stories can encourage other women, especially young girls, to become engaged with research and innovation. Our goal is to invite people from academia as well as the industry to give an insight into their journey and talk about how they overcame various gender issues. In particular, we are interested in interviewing role models who have achievements to present in areas such as career progression, decision-making process, integrating gender in research content, and/or introducing changes in gender equality in STEM institutions.
