International Day of Women and Girls in Science

Fostering a more inclusive and diverse scientific community.

The International Day of Women and Girls in Science, celebrated on February 11, is a global initiative aimed at recognizing and promoting the vital role that women and girls play in the field of science. This day serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of gender equality in the world of scientific research and innovation. It acknowledges the significant contributions made by female scientists and encourages the next generation of girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). By breaking down barriers and addressing gender disparities, the International Day of Women and Girls in Science not only celebrates the achievements of women in science but also fosters a more inclusive and diverse scientific community, leading to enhanced creativity, innovation, and problem-solving for the benefit of all humanity.
