On Sunday, December 5, 2021, W-STEM was part of the Communities Summit organized by TechnoLatinas (https://lu.ma/CumbredeComunidades). An event whose main objective has been to promote the inclusion and development of people who identify themselves as women in technology or want to enter this industry, through an inclusive and intersectional perspective.
Through 11 collaborative, diverse and inclusive spaces, created by more than 80 communities in Latin America and the Caribbean, work was carried out in the search for actions to promote the path of women in technology based on an idea. The event was organized into working groups that addressed issues related to women and technology at all stages of life, from childhood to the elderly.
W-STEM was represented by Ángeles Domínguez, Associate Dean of Faculty Development at the School of Medicine and Health Sciences and professor and researcher at the School of Humanities and Education at Tecnológico de Monterrey. In particular, her participation focused on the session “Older Adults: Digital Divide in the Elderly”.
