Accelerating Action to Close the Gender Gap in Science

The gender disparity in the field of science remains a persistent issue, with only one in three researchers being women globally. Despite some progress, the ongoing barriers that female scientists continue to face discourage girls from pursuing scientific careers and hinder their progress in the field.

To address these barriers and build on the key findings and recommendations from the UNESCO Global Forum “The Future for Women and Girls in Science” and the AFNEUS “Women in Science” Congress, an event in collaboration with L’Association fédérative nationale des étudiant.e.s universitaires scientifiques (AFNEUS) will be held to celebrate the 2024 International Day of Women and Girls in Science. This event will also unveil the UNESCO Call for Action “Closing the gender gap in science” and provide valuable insights on initiatives, resources, and best practices to put the Call for Action into practice.
