The International Day of Women & Girls in Science takes place on the 11th February 2021. Science and gender equality are both vital for the achievement of the internationally agreed Sustainable Development Goals, including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Over the past 15 years, the global community has increased its effort in inspiring and engaging women and girls in science; however, women and girls continue to be excluded from participating fully in science.
On the International Day of Women & Girls’ in Science, NRI is highlighting the contribution of women in science. We asked women scientists how they became involved in science and for any advice and lessons for women thinking of a career in science.
Join us in celebrating with some of the women who work in science – both natural and social sciences - at the Natural Resources Institute.
