International Day of Women and Girls in Science

On 11 February 2022, EUROfusion, as a member of EIROforum, celebrates the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.

 

The International Day of Women and Girls in Science was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in order to promote full and equal access and participation for women and girls in science. Today is an opportunity to celebrate the essential role that women and girls play in science and technology.

EUROfusion and the other institutions of the fusion industry are together setting up a global framework to represent, support and promote women in fusion all around the world. To increase the number of females in leadership roles, EUROfusion is striving to include in each selection committee/panel at least one or two women.

To recognise these inspirational contributions, EUROfusion as member of EIROforum has reached out to the children in the lives of their staff, challenging them to tap into their artistic creativity to provide a drawing to celebrate the theme of 'Women in Science'.
 
The response to our call was just as inspirational as the drawings themselves! The digital collage below has incorporated the young, creative contributions across the EIROforum membership to celebrate the day.
 
We wish to thank all of our young artists for joining in the celebration of International Day of Women and Girls in Science!
