Celebrating the International Day of Women & Girls in Science


Celebrating the International Day of Women & Girls in Science

The University of Granada has launched a series of activities throughout the month of February to highlight the work of female researchers, create gender roles in the field of science, and promote practices that foster gender equality in the scientific domain. These initiatives commemorate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, celebrated on February 11th.

From the Memory and Language research group, our colleagues Mª Jesús Maraver and Cristina López-Rojas have collaborated by giving informative talks at the Abencerrajes Primary School in the municipality of Granada. These talks have been designed to inspire 5th and 6th-grade students, providing them with a broader perspective on the crucial role women play in the field of science. In addition to highlighting the work carried out at the Mind, Brain, and Behavior Research Center (CIMCYC) of the University of Granada, the talks have explored various aspects of scientific research and have encouraged curiosity and interest in Cognitive Psychology and Neurosciences.

This initiative, organized by the Unit of Scientific Culture and Innovation of the Vice-Rectorate for University Extension and Heritage of UGR, not only seeks to highlight the excellence of scientific work done by women but also aims to empower young women and show them that they have the potential and capabilities to excel in the scientific field. By providing role models and encouraging active participation of girls in science, the goal is to contribute to building a more equitable and diverse society, where everyone has equal opportunities to pursue their interests and achieve their professional goals.
