Gender Gap in Science Book Published

IUBS is one of the ten partners in the ISC funded project  "A Global Approach to the Gender Gap in Mathematical, Computing, and Natural Sciences: How to Measure It, How to Reduce It?". All the findings, conclusions and recommendationf of the project are now available as a downloadable book. The preliminary version of the book is available here. It contains a set of Recommendations for Instructor and Parents, for Local Organizations and for Scientific Unions.

The results of findings of the surveys and studies done via this project were presented in a recent conference held at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Italy in November 2019. They were also disucssed in a recent event of the celebration of the  International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2020 was co-organized by UNESCO on 7th February 2020.
