International Women's Day
Launch of the online “Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) Initiative for Women Marine Scientists”
In the framework of the Celebrations of the International Women's Day 2012, UNESCO will launch a series of interviews with women scientists working in different fields of marine sciences, focusing on why and how they decided to start a career in marine sciences, and what this choice meant for their lives.
The interviews will also focus on the role of IOC in promoting gender equality in marine sciences and what can be done in the future to assure that women and men enjoy the same status and have equal opportunities in developing their careers in this specific area. A network of women marine scientists who will act as role models for young women scientists will subsequently be created.
