STEM Identity Promotion

 Enhance the positive image of STEM professionals so that students can identify more easily with STEM fields. Show STEM professionals as a normal reference, as people leading normal lives (in terms of hobbies, academic failures and successes, family and friends, etc.).

Talk about STEM fields, but also about STEM grounding (what this topic is like, what it was like before, what we want it to be like, what each one can do to improve it…).

Show compatibility between STEM fields and females identities, but without being FRIVOLOUS! Facilitate the exchange between professionals and STEM youth of the same gender, with similar interests in life, ethnicity, etc.

Draw attention to the historical and current contribution of women and other groups, avoiding stereotyped images, without exclusively highlighting the success cases.
