Science is exciting. Science is useful. Through science we gain a better understanding of our world and devise solutions to many of the challenges that we face.
But science is an area with too few women and girls. We can change that.
This International Day for Women and Girls in Science is an opportunity to critically review and take steps to remove the obstacles that prevent women and girls from building careers in science.
We need science. And science needs more women. Let us invest in women and girls in science for inclusive green growth.
