February 12, 2024

We would like to celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science with you! It is celebrated annually on February 11th. This day aims to promote full and equal access to science for women and girls, as well as to recognize the achievements of women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields.

The day highlights the importance of breaking down stereotypes and gender biases in STEM education and careers. It also aims to encourage more girls and young women to pursue careers in STEM by showcasing the accomplishments of female scientists and providing opportunities for mentorship and networking.

Various organizations, institutions, and individuals around the world participate in events and activities on this day to raise awareness about the importance of gender equality in science and to inspire the next generation of female scientists and innovators.

Here are some women from our Earth Observation Research Cluster in action, whether it is conducting research, teaching, or working in the field! Together, we celebrate and promote the contributions of all women in our department to our work and the scientific community.
