About Us

STEM WOMEN CONGRESS (SWC), wants to create a joint action plan for the first time, between all the institutions and organizations that support the STEM field and the feminine field. The goal is to achieve a world of equal opportunities between men and women.



The world will increasingly be more technological and the power will be in companies highly intensive in STEM knowledge.

We believe in a world with equal opportunities. So that, we need to place also women in the power positions.


Unify efforts in the combination of initiatives that exist and jointly establish global objectives that we carry out among all.

Encourage more women to opt for STEM careers.
