You are invited to attend a panel discussion featuring leading Czech scientists who will discuss the importance of encouraging young women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Tactics for increasing the number of women in these fields will be discussed. The panel will include the first female president of the Czech Academy of Sciences professor Helena Illnerová, head of the Institute of Food Analysis and Nutrition of the University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague professor Jana Hajšlová, and Deputy Head of the Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Immunology of the Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences professor Helena Tlaskalová-Hogenová.  Designated President of the Czech Academy of Sciences Professor Eva Zažímalová will join the discussion if her schedule allows.
