IRBLleida joins the activities of the International Day of Women and Girls with an online meeting of female researchers with the students of the Lestonnac School
Last Friday, the Institute's Works Council organised a talk by the journalist and biotechnologist Ángela Bernardo, author of the book 'Acoso. Me Too in Spanish science'.
Once again, on 11 February, the International Day of Women and Girls in Science will be commemorated and a multitude of activities will be held to give visibility to the work of women working in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) areas. The Institute of Biomedical Research of Lleida (IRBLleida) joins this initiative to create female references for girls and promote practices that contribute to achieving gender equality in science.
On Friday 11 February, researchers from IRBLleida will talk to secondary school students at the Lestonnac School. It will be an online meeting where they will present themselves and the students will be able to ask questions. The Institute will also carry out a campaign on social networks to publicise leading female researchers.
In addition, on Friday 4 February, the IRBLleida Works Council organised a talk with the journalist and biotechnologist Ángela Bernardo, author of the book 'Harassment. Me Too in Spanish science'. A journalistic work on sexual harassment and gender-based harassment in universities and public research organisations. The book combines interviews and analysis to offer an up-to-date perspective on these issues.
