Turkey’s Engineer Girls with YouthJul 25, 2017
The “Turkey’s Engineer Girls” Project, implemented in cooperation by the T.R. Ministry of Family and Social Policies, LIMAK Foundation and UNDP Turkey to increase women’s propensity to engineering fields and presence of women engineers in decision-making posts, was initiated in universities in the last year.
Recently, a pilot application “Turkey’s Engineer Girls, High School Program” in the context of the same project was initiated in Hatay. Aiming to promote gender equality in choosing professions, de-gendering the professions, raising the awareness of parents, students and teachers on the matter, and breaking the gender stereotypes, the main goal of the program is to strengthen and sustain the station of women in economy in the long run.
