About (English version): 

The International Girls in ICT Day, happening every year on the fourth Thursday of April, aims to create a global environment that empowers and encourages young girls and women to consider careers in ICT. The 2022 theme facilitates discussions and possibilities to overcome the access and safety barriers that girls face when they aspire to pursue STEM studies and careers.

On this episode of “Daughters of Marie” we discuss these barriers and challenges with four women in ICT: Irem Boybat, Research Staff Member at IBM Research - Zurich; Elana Pereira de Santana, PhD student at Universität Siegen; Fátima Rodríguez, PhD student at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC); and Nuria Castell, former Associate Professor at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC).

Irem, Elana, Fatima and Nuria are all partners of the WiPLASH Horizon 2020 project, which aims to develop an on-chip wireless communication plane to provide architectural plasticity, reconfigurability and adaptation for any application requirements without any loss of generality.

Speakers: Irem Boybat, Elana Pereira de Santana, Fátima Rodríguez, Nuria Castell and Jelena Lazic.
