I.D.E.A.S. Forum – International Day of Women and Girls in Science

This year, the International Day of Women and Girls in Science (IDWGIS) celebration established by the United Nations, wishes to bring everyone forward for sustainable and equitable development by Innovating, Demonstrating, Elevating, Advancing, and Sustaining – I.D.E.A.S. in terms of the gains made in science. It focuses on the role of Women and Girls and Science towards the achievement of the SDGs.

In addition, this year’s IDWGIS aims to connect the International Community to Women and Girls in Science, strengthening the ties between science, policy, and society for strategies oriented towards the future. It is on this background that the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) Ghana, in partnership with the Henry Luce Foundation, the UN in Ghana and AIMS Women in STEM (AIMSWIS), is organising a Forum that will bring together Women and Girls in Science across Ghana.

AIMS Ghana held three series of advocacy and training sessions on the UNESCO Recommendation on Science and Scientific Researchers (RSSR) from September to December 2022, which saw a collaborative interest in many female scientists and researchers across Ghana.

This forum will therefore create a platform for female scientists, researchers and other science professionals to engage with each other and share experiences on how they have been, or are using their careers to make impact, especially in relation to the implementation of the SDGs.

We invite female researchers to join in this Celebration which comes off in Accra at the ISSER Auditorium – University of Ghana, on Friday, 10th February 2023.
