About the ‘Women and Girls in Science’ session:

If we are to meet the challenges of the 21st century, we must rely on science and involve everyone, including women and girls, who play a key role in the scientific and technological communities.

Based on UNESCO’s efforts to mobilize the global community to engage women and girls in science, we are announcing the call for presentations that diagnose the current situation, show solutions that increase their presence in science as researchers, as well as mechanisms to support them.

Sample topics:

  • the role of women scientists in addressing the challenges of the future,
  • challenges women scientists face in their career development, including the impact of the covid-19 pandemic
  • consequences of ignoring sex and gender in research and best practices of solving this problem,
  • best practice in implementing gender equality at universities, schools and public institutions,
  • best practice in attracting girls and women to science,
  • science and business; best practice in cooperation between scientists and business.
  • ways to empower women and girls in the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development
  • Details and registration are available on the website: http://stn.edu.pl/isyc2021/.
