100 Days of Diversity: The Beauty in the Blend

Diversity is the word on everyone’s lips. But what exactly does it mean?

1.    It refers to our heritage, sexual orientation and gender.
2.    It’s about our education, hobbies and skills.
3.    It’s defined by our thought patterns, ideas and perspectives.
Guess what? All three are correct!

Why? Because our identities are spread across three levels of diversity. Dimension 1 is known as demographic diversity. Dimension 2 refers to experiential diversity, which is based on our life stories and circumstances. Dimension 3 is cognitive diversity—it's our vision of the world around us and a reflection of our unique mindset. 

And at IE University, diversity is our driving force. Not only is it one of our key principles, but this year's sustainability challenge is Accessibility, Inclusion and Belonging. 

With that in mind, we’re dedicating three months to diversity, from February through April. Come and join us for a multitude of activities, conferences and initiatives that honor black history, champion gender equality, and give voice to other groups in our society. Each initiative will be related to one or more diversity dimensions, and we'll gather at the Global Village Segovia in April to celebrate our differences, together.

What are you waiting for? Sign up and pitch in now!

Open to the entire IE Community: undergrad and masters students, staff, faculty, alumni.

Presentación del informe 'Colaboración Intergeneracional frente a los Retos de la Transición Demográfica'

El Observatorio de Demografía y Diversidad Generacional de Fundación IE junto con la Fundación SERES les invitan a la presentación del informe "Colaboración Intergeneracional frente a los Retos de la Transición Demográfica" donde hablaremos sobre cómo comprender la colaboración intergeneracional frente a los retos de la transición demográfica exige comprender la situación de las diferentes generaciones en cuanto a variables demográficas y socio-económicas. Asimismo, se conversará sobre cómo la evolución de estas variables que podemos medir se materializa en la experiencia concreta de las personas en diferentes etapas de su vida y cómo afecta a la relación entre ellas. En este evento plantearemos algunos de los aspectos más relevantes extraídos de la investigación, que pueden traducirse en acciones concretas a tener en cuenta tanto por los Gobiernos como por el resto de los agentes sociales, para señalar, por último, algunas de las líneas que quedan abiertas para futuras investigaciones.

Proyecto patrocinado por Mapfre, Fundación FAES y Banco InterAmericano de Desarrollo.

Breaking Stereotypes in STEM education: Yes, I can.

Over the past decades, the landscape of women working in STEM related fields hasn't changed much. In 1970, women made up 7% of the STEM workforce. In 1990, this number grew to 23%. Fast forward to 2022, and the number remains almost the same at 25% of workforce. Three important factors that help explain these low percentages are gender stereotypes that women face in the workplace, the lack of STEM sponsors and mentors for women, and a wage gap between males and females occupying similar positions. Our objective is to break the stereotypes surrounding STEM majors as not suitable for women and inspire girls by listening to the experience of prominent female STEM leaders.
