eSTEM Morocco organized the first edition of the International Conference for Girls in STEM on May 6th, 2017 to discuss the different challenges preventing Girls from pursuing studies in STEM fields, as well as the solutions to fix these challenges and to bring more Girls into STEM fields in general, and in leadership positions in particular.

Speakers from Morocco, Tunisia, US and Japan representing academia, industry and governments were invited to the conference.

We couldn’t speak about girls without bringing girls around the table, hence many brilliant girls with exceptional stories were on stage to share their stories and inspire more girls to believe in their capabilities.

The conference was combined with the Morocco Finale of the Technovation Challenge and the selection of the Moroccan teams qualified for the global semi finale of the competition.
