Elevating Women in Science
Women scientists are leading ground-breaking research across the world. But despite their remarkable discoveries, women still represent just 33.3 %* of researchers globally, and their work rarely gains the same level of recognition as their male counterparts.

Join a researcher, librarian and a head of publishing to hear what librarians can do to encourage diversity and inclusion in learning and researching, and what mentor programs and initiatives they can introduce to elevate the next generation of female scientists.

This webinar will spotlight the award-winning “Chicas en Tecnologia,” a non-profit civil society organization that seeks to reduce the gender gap in the technological entrepreneurial environment, highlight what they’ve accomplished so far, and demonstrate what librarians and publishers can do to support these initiatives. Lastly, listen to what steps Springer Nature as a publisher undertakes to support amplifying the voices of women and underrepresented groups in science as well as within the company itself.

Join us for a discussion on how the academic and publishing world can help empower more women scientists to achieve scientific excellence and amplify their contribution in solving the greatest challenges facing humanity. This 1-hour webinar will feature talks by all three guest speakers, followed by a Q&A session.
