Faculties with STEM programmes at KU Leuven are working to attract more female students, with actions such as Women and science, Ladies@science and Ladies@space. The commitment to improving the intake and advancement of women in professorial positions also changes the image of women in this career. These role models play an important role in attracting and retaining a diverse group of students and thus promote the intake and advancement of female students in fields of study in which they are under-represented. KU Leuven currently offers 130 STEM-related activities aimed at secondary schools (pupils and teachers).
