Belgian Women in Science presented their initiatives taken in favor of gender equal representation in science studies at the EuroScience Open Forum in July 2018 in Toulouse.

BeWiSe takes part in the March for Science: join us on April 22 !

The March for Science is the first step of a global movement to defend the vital role science plays in our health, safety, economies, and governments. It is a celebration of science, a call for science that upholds the common good and for political leaders and policy makers to enact evidence based policies in the public interest.

The March takes place on Earth Day - April 22 - in dozens of countries worldwide.
Belgian Women in Science's Secretary will take part in Portugal. Thanks Anneke for this!

You too can join a march in your region
