Women in science have the power to change the world - Push

The L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science program was founded in 1998 with a simple aim; to ensure that women are fairly represented at all levels in science. We face unprecedented challenges in our world; climate change, sustainable energy, affordable healthcare, security among other issues. Part of the solutions will come from science and science needs women. Those recognized by the L’Oréal-UNESCO program have already proved how transformative their science can be in addressing these challenges.
