Celebrating women in science this IWD

Celebrating women in science this IWD

In recognition of International Women’s Day, Aurum celebrates some of its leading UNESCO data states, less than 30% of the world’s researchers are women. 

Not a single country can claim to have achieved Gender Equality. Women & girls continue to be undervalued; they work more, earn less & have fewer choices. 

The emerging global consensus is that despite some progress, real change has been agonizingly slow for the majority of women and girls in the world. An equal future can only be achieved if we realise the rights of females of all ages.   

 Gender equality is not only a women's issue, it is everyone's issue. 

On International Women's Day 2020 we celebrate Women in Science, we celebrate change makers of all ages and genders & open a discussion on how we can collectively tackle the unfinished business of empowering all women and girls.

The research is clear & the equations are simple, gender equality is:

Good for Countries
Good for Companies
Good for Families
Good for Men
Good for Children
