What are human rights?
Human rights are something that each person has by virtue of being human: you are born with them. Human rights are interrelated, interdependent and indivisible.

What are some examples of human rights?
Some examples of human rights are: the right to life, the right to the highest attainable standard of health, the right to adequate standard of living, the right to education, the right to equality and to equal treatment under the law, freedom of information, freedom of association, accessibility for persons with disabilities, and access to justice. These are just a few. There are a lot more!

Have you ever wondered how working at a Swiss startup looks like? And why diversity is important in order to create outstanding digital products? We’ve discussed it with Anu Ylänen, the only woman in the tech team of Batmaid, living in Lausanne, Switzerland.

We couldn’t agree more with her pieces of advice for novices in this field! #womeninSTEM #womenintech

In our series of interviews with women in STEM, we’ve talked to Jannicke Mikkelsen FNF (Norwegian Society of Cinematographers), a freelance Virtual Reality (VR) film Director and Cinematographer based in London, United Kingdom. She is internationally known for her work with the British Rock band Queen and lead singer Adam Lambert on their Virtual Reality film “VR The Champions” (2017).

Her path is incredible, featuring a National Championship at speed skating, working for Paramount Pictures, building a Virtual Reality installation for the Apollo Celebration Gala hosted at NASA Kennedy Space Center, recovering from a horrific injury and being a VR Film Director. Mikkelsen’s groundbreaking VR work awarded her the 2017 IMAGO Award for Extraordinary Technical Achievement (European Society of Cinematographers), and recognition as one of Norway’s most influential women in tech of 2017.

We've recently interviewed successful women from around the world to show that they have many different stories, career paths and points of view. What is their inspiration and who are their role models? Are they aware of human rights in the working environment? What pieces of advice do they give?

Read an inspirational story of Adriana L. Romero-Olivares, a postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of New Hampshire. She has cared a lot about the environment since she was a child and it has eventually driven her to the career in STEM.
