Women in Science

Filed Under

Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #5 calls for 'Gender Equality', but achieving any of the goals will require the equal involvement of women. Globally, however, women are under-represented in science and technology disciplines. This is especially true when considering mathematics, physics and engineering. It is also clear that women scientists have difficulty climbing the career ladder - in other words, there is a 'leaky pipeline' whereby fewer and fewer women are reaching decision-making positions. IAP, especially through its regional networks, is attempting to encourage more female students to consider scientific careers, and includes women scientists in all expert committees, working groups, conference panel sessions, etc.

Below is a list of relevant meetings, projects, press releases, programs, articles, statements, reports, forums etc. related to women in science. This listing does not contain all IAP website content; items are selected for inclusion based on – how recently they have been posted and - their popularity among site visitors.
