On April 27th, the University of Valencia’s School of Engineering (ETSE-UV) hosted a new talk on Girls4STEM, a project designed to promote STEM vocations (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) particularly among girls.

This series of conferences, open to the public and hosted by the Girls4STEM project, scheduled a special session last Thursday, April 27th at 4:30pm during the #ForoEmpleo (Employment Forum) at ETSE-UV. This session was dedicated to sponsor Ángela Pérez Pérez, a UV graduate in Biological Sciences with a Master’s in Business Management and an Executive Master’s in Innovation. She is currently the executive vice-president of Health in Code, and in 2022 she was recognised as entrepreneur of the year at the Rei Jaume I Awards.

The conferences took place among the activities of #SI2023 (IT Week 2023) at the Official College of Computer Science Engineering of the Valencian Region.

The goal of these discussions was to shine the spotlight on female professionals and their careers within STEM fields in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Experts at this conference included Beatriz Ruiz Casanova, Patricia Ramón Tadghighi, and Ana Bueno Gimeno.

The event was livestreamed through the Girls4STEM YouTube channel. You can watch a recording of this livestream below:
