To mark this 2023 International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we have decided to share advice, with all the young girls and women, dreaming of a career in science.
Despite some progress made in the recent years, women in science remain underrepresented in the field. Many biases must be taken into account to understand the underlying reasons of this issue. Gender stereotypes, lack of support, self-censorship, the biaises we need to address are multiple and intersectional.
We have asked 5 women in science from EWOB’s community what would they say if they could talk to their younger self. Explore, enjoy – and take note – of their advice!
