Empowering women and girls through digital and entrepreneurial competences with ESTEAM Fests and Communities

Event language: English

Only 24.5% of women in the EU between 2014 to 2018 felt that they had the knowledge and skills to start a business, compared to about half of men. Studies also show that although girls are as interested in science-related careers as boys at a young age, they tend to deviate from science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) topics as they grow up.

Deloitte together with the European Women Association (EWA) and Vlajo are conducting a project for the European Commission and the European Innovation and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA) to empower women and girls, in particular, by boosting their digital and entrepreneurial competences and increasing their confidence to choose STEM career paths.

What does the project entail?

Throughout the three years of the project, 11 ESTEAM Fests (ESTEAM stands for Entrepreneurship, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) will be organised in 19 EU Member States to boost women and girls’ competences, to inspire them, and to give them the chance to connect with like-minded peers. ESTEAM online communities, for women and girls, will also be built to sustain the momentum of the events and to allow them to keep learning and connecting with their peers online.
