ICN2 supports the International Day of Women and Girls in Science 

11 February was proclaimed by the United Nations the International Day of Women and Girls in Science to support and promote the access of women and girls and their participation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics education, training and research activities at all levels.

On 22 December 2015, the General Assembly of United Nations adopted a resolution to establish an annual International Day to recognize the critical role women and girls play in science and technology communities. 11 February was proclaimed the International Day of Women and Girls in Science to support and promote the access of women and girls and their participation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics education, training and research activities at all levels.

To celebrate this day and visualize the active role of women in science in our institute, ICN2 has joined the platform 11Febrero.org, invited the women working at ICN2 to gather for a commemorative picture and supports the initiatives celebrated in the UAB Campus to celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. Let’s keep working together to achieve real equality and turn this celebration into a festive event with nothing to assert.

Finally, we invite you to view the video from CSIC to commemorate this celebration.
