24 scientific-technological entities have joined forces to achieve these objectives: To make women scientists more visible. To break stereotypes. To encourage scientific vocations.

In order to ensure full and equal access and participation in science for women and girls, the United Nations General Assembly decided in 2016 to proclaim 11 February as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.

To commemorate this day and join this worldwide initiative, 24 scientific-technological entities representing the Basque Country's science and technology fabric have joined forces to present a full programme of activities intended for all audiences. 

In 2022 Emakumeak Zientzian received the first STEAM Euskadi award and the award for the special mention of gender perspective in the category of Most Innovative STEAM Education Initiative granted by the Basque Government Department of Education and Innobasque.

Our aim is to spotlight women's activity in science, put an end to the typically male roles attributed to scientific-technical activities, and to encourage girls and teenagers to choose scientific careers.
