Celebrating Women and Gender Equality
Sunday, March 8th is International Women’s Day (IWD) and this year’s theme is “Each for Equal”, encouraging each of us to do what we can to create a gender equal world. International Day of Women and Girls in Science also took place recently on February 11th. Did you know that globally, only 35% of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students in higher education are women? Diversity can expand the pool of talented researchers, bring fresh perspectives and creativity. At MEDUCOM, we’re proud to work in an office of many talented businesswomen with science backgrounds. What can we all do to continue supporting women in the industry? Challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations for women and celebrate women’s achievements. Happy IWD and Women in Science Day!
