GENDER STEREOTYPES AND WOMEN DESIGN. NEW NARRATIVES
The University La Sapienza in Rome is organising an international Symposium dedicated to enhancing the presence of Women – students, graduates, scholars and professors – who were educated in the technical-scientific schools of the University. The title of the conference, Techniche Sapienti, holds reference to these two aspects: the 16th century name of Rome University “La Sapienza”, alias The Wisdom, and the technical education, mainly engineering and architecture, of the women under scrutiny.
The event will consist of three sessions:
INCREASE THE AWARENESS
RECEPTION AND DEBATE
BECOMING VISIBLE. DISSEMINATION AND MEDIA

The LTTAs are important parts of the YesWePlan! project and offer an exchange of know-how and experience between participants from all partner organisations. It practically shows examples of methods to enhance equality in the profession and offers the possibility to exchanges with local experts:
