STEMtalk in Kukes

Our final #STEMtalk had its stop in the city of Kukës, where we joined students and teachers to discuss the role of young girls and women in STEM, in the framework of our #STEMspressoxMuc project: “Increasing representation of women in STEM and countering gender stereotyping in Albania.”

Together with the young participants we reflected on how gender stereotypes influence women’s educational pathways and careers. They emphasized the need for awareness and education, paving the way for a future where gender does not dictate career choices.

Part of the discussion focused also on how career counseling and support in schools can empower youth to pursue paths aligned with their passion, skills, and future job prospects.

Under the moderation of Dea Elmasllari and Billa Besmir, and with the special input of Orkidea XhaferajAnxhela Vincani (Gjana), and Artjola Saraci, participants pointed to the need for a transformative path for education to equip young minds with practical knowledge and critical thinking skills as the building blocks for a dynamic understanding of STEM.
