International Day of Women & Girls in Science & Technology

11th February 2021

The International Day of Women & Girls in Science and technology supports full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls along with gender equality and female empowerment.

Why support women and girls in science and technology?

  • Because women currently make up less than 30% of researchers worldwide
  • Because access to tech benefits women’s economic empowerment and health
  • Because 90% of future formal sector jobs will require ICT skills
  • Because we need diverse solutions to our biggest challenges
  • Because the world needs science, and science needs women!
