Today it’s the International Women’s Day, a day to remember how important are women in society, even if gender equality seems to be still far from our society.
“Advancing gender equality in science and technology is essential for building a better future”, Secretary-General António Guterres stated.
According to the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), “women account for only one third of the world’s researchers and hold fewer senior positions than men at top universities, which has led to a lower publication rate, less visibility, less recognition and, critically, less funding”.
Changing the future is possibile, but it needs our collective efforts. C.M. Lerici Foundation supports women in all the professional fields through annual scholarships aimed at promoting the cultural exchange between Italy and Sweden.
