Women in Science
The goal of this workshop is to empower women to become successful in their chosen profession in science.
The goal of this workshop is to empower women to become successful in their chosen profession in Science. It is acknowledged that the low number of women in science, and the sometimes-harmful working conditions that these women face, is a serious problem for the scientific community as a whole. As a step towards addressing some of these issues, three Career Development Workshops for Women in Physics were conducted at the ICTP-Italy in 2013, 2015 and 2017. The positive outcome of these workshops, and the fact that several women who applied were not able to participate in these earlier ones due to lack of funds or space, has motivated some women to propose a fourth such workshop in 2018 for women in science from developing countries, especially OWSD fellows/alumnae whose research is in science. A 4-day workshop, organized by RAWISE, OWSD and ICTP-EAIFR, will be conducted at the ICTP-EAIFR premises of the University of Rwanda. A new group of women scientists will be selected for this year’s workshop, with the aim of reaching the greatest range of participants possible. The workshop will combine a variety of highly interactive exercises, talks, panel discussions, training sessions and other activities designed to help women in science share their experiences, gain self-confidence and acquire extra skills to facilitate their success in science. See poster for more details.
Application deadline: 20 August 2018
