Every year on February 11th, the International Day of Women and Girls in Science promotes full and equal access for women and girls to participate in science. This day is also a reminder that women and girls play a key role in science and technology communities and that their participation needs to be strengthened.
Many organizations around the world take part in this day. Some of these include the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UNWomen), and the Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World (OWSD).
Our COST Action fully supports the equality of genders in accessing science in relevant scientific projects and leadership positions. Let's continue working in this way.
