Second-year students at the IES Drago secondary school in the capital of Cadiz were welcomed to the Navantia Puerto Real facilities by the managers of different departments at the Bay of Cadiz Shipyard, in their role as mentors as part of the Inspira STEAM project, in collaboration with Navantia’s Sum@ project. These students already took part in the initiative last year. Its aim is to promote careers in STEAM professions, mainly among young girls.
Inspira STEAM is a pioneering project that seeks to promote scientific and technological careers among girls through awareness raising and guidance imparted by women professionals in the world of research, science and technology. This is the first time the group mentoring technique has been used in a project to promote STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) among secondary school students.
Navantia’s Sum@ project also helps ensure the company is somewhere all staff can develop and grow, eliminating gender barriers. Navantia’s management is committed to supporting gender diversity and engages everyone who is part of the business in striving for this goal.
