The International Day of Women and Girls in Science, celebrated on 11 February, is an opportunity to promote full and equal access to science for women and girls. The challenge is getting more women working in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Diversity in research brings in fresh perspectives, talent and creativity.
This Day is a reminder that women and girls play a critical role in science and technology communities and that their participation should be strengthened.
LPI adheres to this initiative and, especially today, highlights the work of its women researchers.
