This Colloquium has been held semester by semester since May 2016.

This semester, the theme of the Colloquium is entitled "The woman who transforms: her importance and impact on scientific and technological development".

Today, a persistent gap is still evident in women who choose professions to work on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) careers. In Mexico, the presence of women in these careers or areas has grown in recent years. In the National Research System, they represent about 39% of the total of its members. However, as the category rises, and by area of knowledge, this presence decreases, having a higher percentage within the areas of Social Sciences and Humanities than in those of Natural and Exact Sciences. To combat gender stereotypes, the interest and acceptance of woman in STEM fields should be stimulated from the first educational degrees. The Autonomous University of Mexico State (UAEM, by its acronym in Spanish) is aware of this and in order to advance in the equitable access to education and the labor field for women and men, through the Institutional Development Rector Plan (PRDI 2017-2021, by its acronym in Spanish) supports Incursion/Inclusion Programs for Woman through strategies such as academic mobility, gender equality in the processes of admission or selection and hiring of personnel, promotion in management positions and department heads, access to full-time teaching positions, and certification in the Mexican Standard in Labor Equality and Non-Discrimination NMX-R-025-SCFI-2015.
