In celebration of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science on the 11th of February 2022, Lero is celebrating the role of women and girls in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

Lero is an industry leader in encouraging women and girls to consider a career in STEM through our many industry collaborations, partnerships and programmes, including our partnership with Johnson & Johnson WiSTEM 2D program, Science Foundation Ireland Science Week and CodePlus, a Computer Science (CS) outreach engagement project that encourages, facilitates and provides opportunities to teenage female students to engage with Computer Science.

We invited some of the amazing women who are leading excellence in software research and change through their incredible research and work to share some of their work.
