An event to promote careers in science and engineering for girls

The sixth edition of “Elargis tes horizons–Genève” (ETH) will be held on Saturday, 16 November 2019. This two-yearly event aims to encourage young girls to opt for studies and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. It will be held at the University of Geneva (Uni Mail building), and entry is free.

Up to 450 11- to 14-year-old girls living in and around Geneva will get to take part in 30 workshops and other activities designed to show them that girls too can get a lot out of science and technology.

As part of this year’s event, we will be holding a panel discussion for the parents of the girls in attendance.

This will be an opportunity for the parents to talk with education experts and female scientists about how to spark their daughters’ interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics

The panel discussion is free of charge and will be held in French only.
Time: 9:30am–10:30am in the main Uni Mail auditorium.
To sign up: Please send an email to or use the online form.

“Fille et sciences ? Est-ce possible ?”
Panel discussion organized by the 
University of Geneva’s Equal Opportunities Team.
This panel discussion is part of the “100 Women and Thousands More” campaign aimed at highlighting women with interesting and inspiring careers in science and engineering. Some of the 100 women featured in the campaign will be sitting on the panel and will share their stories.
