MANIFESTO TO PROMOTE THE ROLE OF WOMEN IN SCIENCE

For the past 18 years, the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science program has encouraged, promoted and honoured women scientists all over the world. However, the current situation indicates that much remains to be done. The year’s Awards Ceremony concluded with the launch of the For Women in Science Manifesto: an opinion campaign aimed at engaging the scientific community and the general public to step up the pace of change for women in science.

THE 6 COMMITMENTS OF THE #FORWOMENINSCIENCE MANIFESTO


1/ Encourage girls to explore scientific career paths


2/ Break down the barriers that prevent women scientists from pursuing long term careers in research


3/ Prioritise women’s access to senior positions and leadership positions in the sciences


4/ Celebrate with the general public the contribution that women scientists make to scientific progress and to society


5/ Ensure gender equality through participation and leadership in symposiums and scientific commissions, such as conferences, committees and board meetings


6/ Promote mentoring and networking for young scientists to enable them to plan and develop careers that meet their expectations
