Regina Llopis, CEO of Grupo AIA is one of the five entrepreneurs who have broken the glass ceiling

The gender gap in STEM areas is clearly exposed not only in universities but also in the business world. Grupo AIA has worked to reduce the gap through positive recruitment and development policies to attract and retain women´s talent and giving continuous support to those women studying Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering.

Regina LLopis, president and founder of Grupo AIA has always promoted gender equality in the business group and is a staunch supporter of business projects created by and addressed to women. As expressed in an article published in El País Retina entitled: “five entrepreneurs who have broken the technological glass ceiling, where Regina Llopis talks about the need to break taboos and girls´ roles stereotypes.

In this article, the president of Grupo AIA, stands for women´s participation in decision making and visibility as technological makers: engineers who have invented and developed programs and systems, physics and mathematicians who created and implemented algorithms will be the role models for those that are girls now and will be the women undertaking technological entrepreneurship in the future.

Consequently, the slim presence of women in STEM areas is mainly due to the lack of women as referent models and gender and stereotypes bias. Moreover, Regina Llopis stands for the STEAM acronyms (Science, Technology, Engineer, Arts, and Mathematics) as she believes Arts (including Architecture) adds a more holistic vision to basic sciences and engineering.

Making them believe in their potential and put away unconscious bias that stops them from taking risks or the impostor syndrome (sprung up since early childhood) that hinders their access to professional careers are some of the factors to be aware of.
