Five years ago, the United Nations General Assembly declared 11 February International Day of Women and Girls in Science. Since then, 11 February is a day devoted to educational and public outreach activities that address the participation and progress of women and girls in science.
Once again, IRB Barcelona joins the celebration of this International Day. Today some of its researchers such as Ilaria Dutto, Maria Sanchiz, Meritxell Teixidó, Anna Lladó, Anna Pijuan, Katerina Danezi and Beatriz Pino will be participating, among other activities targeting the public, in “100tífiques”.
At IRB Barcelona, where we work tirelessly to drive vocation for science, especially among women and girls, today is a great day that we want to celebrate with you. Our female scientists invite you to check out this video, in which they give some advice to their 12-year-old selves. Do you know what they would say to these young girls?
