International Day of Women and Girls in Science

Date: 11/02/2021

Today, on the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we recall that the female representation among students in ICT is still small: in Portugal the female gender represents 12% of ICT students, in Europe it represents 17%, in the world it represents 3%.

LASIGE is proud to have a female representation higher than the average: 28.4% of the LASIGE community is composed by women who work actively for the development of science and on its dissemination! LASIGE scientists also develop relevant work with the pre-university community to reverse this statistic, namely through the initiative Girls in ICT.
