March 14th-15th, 2019 - Second stakeholder meeting - FEMINA

The aim of the second FEMINA convention was for partners to continue to learn about the barriers to women's participation in high-tech companies and to start exchanging possible solutions to be adopted.

The Convention began with an exchange of experiences to share and review the updated regional contribution to the barrier understanding model, focusing on specific sectors and policies. It continued with a specific seminar to discuss and validate the solution understanding model and to start identifying good practices (GPs).

The convention was open to interested local partners and stakeholders to contribute to the project theme.
