Accelerating Action to Close the Gender Gap in Science

The ongoing issue of gender disparity in the field of science remains a significant challenge, with only one in three researchers being women globally. Despite some progress, girls continue to be discouraged from pursuing scientific careers due to numerous barriers that female scientists face.

To address this issue 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 will be held in celebration of the 2024 International Day of Women and Girls in Science. The event will 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.
