Equality in Leadership for Latin America STEM

The Latin American Open Data for Gender Equality Policies Focusing on Leadership in STEM project, known by the acronym ELLAS (Equality in Leadership for Latin American STEM), aims to generate and utilize connected open data from Latin American countries useful for policies and initiatives aimed at reducing the gender gap in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), especially for gender equality in leadership in universities, industries, and public institutions. The project involves a large network of researchers from different countries, referred to as ELLAS.

Map the factors, stakeholders, and policies influencing the career development of women in STEM for data collection and analysis.

Build and implement an open data platform that integrates primary and secondary data on the career development of women in STEM.

Promote the use of open data on women in STEM leadership to increase public awareness of gender issues in STEM fields.

Provide recommendations to policymakers in Latin America to increase the number of women in STEM careers.

Latin American Open Data for Gender Equality Policies Focusing on Leadership in STEM

The Latin American Open Data for Gender Equality Policies Focusing on Leadership in STEM project (original name in English) emerges from a partnership between 8 institutions from 3 different countries: Bolivia, Brazil, and Peru. Today, our project involves over 60 people working together for a single purpose: to promote gender equality in STEM fields, with a focus on leadership. The project is known by the acronym ELLAS, the name of the international research network formed for its execution.
The project was initiated in 2022, with a duration of 36 months. More than 25 scientific publications have been generated, and this is just the beginning!
