UCD Women@Stem is a network of faculty members, operation & management staff, and students supporting equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We have a focus on those that identify as a woman in these areas. Membership is open to students, staff, faculty and anyone who has a desire to drive diversity in STEM. We welcome people of any gender identity into our network, to share insights and perspectives into advancing EDI in STEM.
The first committee, Women in the Sciences (WITS), formed in 2013 and has engaged nationally and internationally with stakeholders to address structural inequities and biases in STEM fields.
The newly formed committee, UCD Women@Stem, follows on from WITS to form a community that challenges cultural norms, fosters personal networks and provides information. Throughout the year we will host seminars, run workshops and provide opportunities for career development.
