The publication “Girls in STEM: Is It a Female Role-Model Thing?”, co-authored by GenTIC director Milagros Sáinz and researchers Susana González-Pérez and Ruth Mateos de Cabo (Universidad CEU San Pablo in Madrid) has been presented in an open webinar organized by Inspiring Girls Foundation and Fundación Pons.

 

The presentation was held on the 20th of October and included a round table with the research authors, as well as the interventions of Carmen Calderón, dean of the Faculty of Economic and Business Sciences at Universidad CEU San Pablo, and Marta Pérez Dorao, chair of Inspiring Girls Foundation.

 

In the study “Girls in STEM: Is It a Female Role-Model Thing?”, published in Frontiers in Psychology, the authors adapted the expectancy-value theory of achievement motivation to explore the impact of the Inspiring Girls Foundation (IGF) program in improving girls’ beliefs that they can be successful in STEM fields and increase their likelihood of choosing a STEM career.
