Our Project Objectives
ENGENDERING STEM is a pan-European collaborative development project, funded by the Erasmus Plus programme. Four partners from Scotland, Netherlands and Spain are working together on the following objectives:
- To improve stakeholder knowledge and awareness of gender equality issues within the STEM sector by engaging a minimum of 200 unique employer and educator participants in a bespoke training programme.
- To engage a minimum of 2000 stakeholders in web based activity over the lifespan of the project including website access, social media interactions, engagement with best practice guides and other project outputs.
- To support 60 SME employers in using the Gender Equality Self-Assessment Tool to assess their progress with respect to recruitment, retention and advancement policies and practice, and produce a bespoke assessment report that is tailored to their individual needs.
- To increase the average number of females recruited by participating employers by 10% by the end of the project.
