Portray Her 2.0: An Analysis of Women in STEM On-Screen



RUN TIME: 60 Minutes

In recent years, there has been a growing recognition of the importance of diversity and inclusion in STEM fields. However, media representations of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) continue to lag behind, often perpetuating stereotypes and overlooking the contributions of female scientists, engineers, and innovators. This panel seeks to explore the critical role of media in shaping perceptions of women in STEM and discuss strategies for improving representation and inspiring the next generation of female leaders in these fields. Bringing together a diverse panel of experts including scientists, filmmakers, educators, and advocates, this discussion will examine the impact of media portrayals on girls' interest in STEM subjects, as well as the broader implications for diversity and equity in STEM careers.
