Mapping resources

Access resources related to the kick-off  symposium and the literature review

The mapping will be achieved through a kick-off symposium that will be bring together researchers, practitioners and interested stakeholders to ‘map’ the field of women’s research career progression in STEM. This mapping work will refer to the policy context, research literature and ‘grey literature’ and will be summarized in a literature review that will be submitted for publication. The mapping process and the assets and resources that relate to it will be archived on the STEM-POWER website.

Kick-off symposium

The kick-off symposium took place on 6 March 2024 and included contributions from key researchers as well as inputs from women leaders, policy-makers and senior leaders with responsibility for people development in HE settings. This event brought together key stakeholders into dialogue to identify key issues and concerns and agenda for change. The kick-off symposium helped to frame the production of the literature review.

The kick-off symposium launched the STEM-POWER Community of Practice Network, which will be facilitated by the project team for the duration of the project to build a model of practice that is self-sustaining beyond project completion.

There are various resources associated to this event which can be access through this webpage which includes:
