After a study done in order to evaluate the numerical presence and the qualification of women in the research staff of ITC-irst, we organized a mentoring initiative consisting of scentific lectures and mentoring workshops held by experienced international female researchers, in the field of computer science, information technology and microelectronics. This initiative aimed at: encouraging female students and researchers by giving them successful examples of research careers; creating more consciousness in ITC-irst researchers and management staff about the role of women in the scentific environment; improving specific skills in women researchers to enhance thier internal position and external visibility. Concerning the evaluation of the initiative, we monitored internal and external reactions, the questionnaires filled in by the participants and new spontanous initiatives emerging internally, among the participants, as a result of the global mentoring action

Abstract

After a study done in order to evaluate the numerical presence and the qualification of women in the research staff of ITC-irst, we organized a mentoring initiative consisting of scentific lectures and mentoring workshops held by experienced international female researchers, in the field of computer science, information technology and microelectronics. This initiative aimed at: encouraging female students and researchers by giving them successful examples of research careers; creating more consciousness in ITC-irst researchers and management staff about the role of women in the scentific environment; improving specific skills in women researchers to enhance thier internal position and external visibility. Concerning the evaluation of the initiative, we monitored internal and external reactions, the questionnaires filled in by the participants and new spontanous initiatives emerging internally, among the participants, as a result of the global mentoring action
