Despite the progress made in recent decades, still today only one in three researchers globally is a woman. This persistent gender disparity is the result of the numerous barriers that female scientists continue to face, all of which can discourage girls from pursuing scientific careers and hinder the progress of women in the field.
On the occasion of the 2024 International Day of Women and Girls in Science, this event will bring together Member States, accomplished and emerging scientists, stakeholders from the public and private sectors, UNESCO scientific networks and Chairs, as well as students. On the following topics:
- Fostering Girls’ Interest in Science through Innovative Education in the Digital Age
- Promoting Empowering Work Environments for Women in Science
With the participation of Catherine Beaumont, Head of Equality and Non-Discrimination, INRAE.
- Inspiring Women and Girls in Science through Role Models and Mentors.
