A recent research on the attractiveness of STEM studies conducted by the STEM Alliance and Amgen Europe finds that girls are slightly more likely than boys to perceive STEM studies as "difficult and confusing", demonstrating a lack of confidence in their own ability to perform well in STEM-related fields.

The petrochemical industry offers remarkable examples of successful women who pursued technical education. This online event will give students the opportunity to meet and engage with two women working in their companies' technical departments and hear how they build trust in their skills and competences during their studies.
