Intercultural STEM! But how?

About this event

TINT, WISE, and Beyond Eindhoven present another inspiring evening to celebrate the United Nations’: 'International Day of Women and Girls in Science'.

Join us on the 14th of February from 18:00 - 21:30 for an exciting event dedicated to finding out how to achieve a welcoming ‘Intercultural STEM’ environment!

You can join us for a delicious vegetarian buffet dinner (at 18:00) and meet your fellow friends, colleagues and alike-minded participants.

For the first hour (19:00), we have invited an amazing speaker, Vincent Merk, who will provide us with his insightful expertise in the field of intercultural communication and team dynamics.

For the second hour (20:00), we have invited several inspiring panelists to join us in a discussion about the topic of Intercultural STEM and their experience. We will be introducing them in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned. We encourage our audience to also have an active part in this discussion. So please bring in your questions, ideas and inspiring real life experiences with you.

Lastly, after the event, feel free to join us at the Zwarte Doos (at 21:00) for a nice cup, tea or a glass of wine, to celebrate this special day, relax and network with others.
