The number of women in science and academia declines with each successive career stage in STEM subjects. As a result, STEM subjects lack the richness of a diversified population. This has serious implications for the research system. Diverse workplaces have been shown to be more productive, innovative, and creative because people from different backgrounds approach problems in a different way and develop different hypotheses. With the purpose of raising awareness about the systematic underrepresentation of women in academic careers and providing students and the scientific community with female and male role models, a comic book titled "Of course!" was published.

The comic book was converted into a comic exhibition on the occassion of Girls' Day 2022 and Diversity Initiative 2022. The exhibitions brings the diverse stories of 14 female and male scientists from the STEM fields to life on LMU campus.

"Let´s play a game! – Who are these women?"

This is how the very first film by the excellent women at the ORIGINS Cluster begins. And what exactly is it about? The Cluster has put together a video of the ORIGINS women to mark the International Day of Women and Girls in Science on February 11. The campaign aims to motivate girls and young women to get involved in science, since there are not that many women (yet) in mathematics, science, engineering and technology.
