From women's eyes

Feb 11, 2022, from 15:00 until 17:00, Online

"In order to achieve full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls, the United Nations General Assembly declared February 11 as the International day of Women and Girls in Science in 2015” (from the UN website). CECAM will mark this important occasion with a special afternoon dedicated to women who contributed to our field… and by proposing an unusual tool to encourage (also) young girls to consider a scientific path.

The program starts with a conversation between Ruth Lynden-Bell (University of Cambridge), Giulia Galli (University of Chicago), Clémence Corminbeuf (EPFL), and Magali Benoit (CNRS) who will share  experiences and perspectives based on their remarkable professional journeys. Ample time will be provided for interactions with the audience to enable a broad discussion, hopefully bringing more and different points of views to the conversation.

The finale of the meeting instead present the new CECAM comics “Cherchez, les femmes” with the authors Susanna Raule and Sara Menetti. This comics is intended as a tool for inclusive dissemination of our way to do science to younger audiences. Hopefully, you will also have some fun reading it!
