The findings of the collaboration between the ISC, GenderInSITE (Gender in Science, Innovation, Technology and Engineering) and the InterAcademy Partnership were published in 2021. The report challenges our complacency with the rate and degree of progress towards gender equity within science and scientific organizations, and sets an agenda for priority action.
The report calls for the establishment of a coalition on gender equality in global science to ensure a transformative action agenda. The report’s findings have been well received and reported upon within the scientific community, and serve as a baseline for advocacy and policy recommendations, and for further research tracking the state of gender equity in science. Working in partnership with the project partners, the ISC will convene meetings in 2022 to explore future joint activities.
‘It is important to have gender-disaggregated data to measure the extent of progress. But we must also use these metrics to spur action. We are pleased to be included in this partnership and encouraged by the expectation expressed in this collaboration that together we can move toward more gender equity in global science.’Shirley Malcom, GenderInSITE Co-chair
