A significant gender gap has persisted at all levels of science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines all over the world. Even though women have made tremendous progress towards increasing their participation in higher education, they are still under-represented in these fields. International Day of Women and Girls in Science is a United Nations initiative aimed at highlighting the work of female researchers, encouraging girls to pursue scientific careers and fighting the bias that can limit the ambitions of young women.
The Office of Graduate Studies and Trainee Affairs is honored to celebrate with our 4th annual event, a panel discussion of distinguished women in the field.
