Organized by Lycée français Jean-Mermoz

The AEFE and the Lycée Français Jean-Mermoz organized an action in Dakar in which 20 girls were present.

Three women scientists will present their profession to girls in the 2nd grade. This presentation will be followed by an exchange/debate on the under-representation of women in industrial occupations, on stereotypes and on the interest of these young women in studying science and working in scientific and technical fields.

The debate will be fuelled by the exhibition "Les découvreuses anonymes" (Anonymous women discoverers), developed by the associations Wax Science and Animafac.

The three speakers who will be speaking at this event are :

Véronique MORTIAUX, Flight Dynamics Engineer.
Nene CISSE, Railway Engineer at Thales Group
