The Science Runway: The Newest Trend For Young Women In Science

The Science Runway: The Newest Trend For Young Women In Science | Women and science | Scoop.it

Today Women In Healthcare & Life Sciences (WIHLS)—a global, non-profit, non-partisan research institute committed to advancing women in the healthcare and life science industries—announces the launch of a new initiative aimed to encourage research and scientific interests of girls. The Science Runway(thesciencerunway.com) is a website specifically designed to attract young girls to careers in healthcare and life sciences by showcasing women who have successfully created careers in a variety of roles.

MyScienceWork's insight:

It is a pity they had to use the "girly" image of the runway to attract young girls, otherwise the idea is neat!

Seulement 30% des chercheurs dans le monde sont des femmes. Quelle est la situation dans votre pays?

Seulement 30% des chercheurs dans le monde sont des femmes. Quelle est la situation dans votre pays? | Women and science | Scoop.it

Dans le monde, seulement 30 % des chercheurs sont des femmes. Bien que les femmes soient de plus en plus nombreuses à s’inscrire à l’université, un grand nombre d’entre elles sont exclues des plus hauts niveaux qui leur permettraient de faire carrière dans la recherche. Cependant, une analyse des données plus approfondie révèle quelques exceptions surprenantes. Par exemple, en Bolivie, les femmes représentent 63 % des chercheurs, contre 26 % en France et 8 % en Éthiopie. (...) - CDEACF, par Mélissa Lessard, 05/03/2014

Why Can’t a Man Think Like a Woman, and a Woman Think Like a Man? (Op-Ed)

Why Can’t a Man Think Like a Woman, and a Woman Think Like a Man? (Op-Ed) | Women and science | Scoop.it
Men and women may feel like they differ on much more than just the possession or not of a Y chromosome. How we react emotionally to a situation, remember events and navigate our way around the environment has also been shown to differ between genders.
MyScienceWork's insight:

Amy Reichelt: "It is important in scientific research to avoid neurosexism - jumping to gender stereotypes as conclusions to explain observations. This can lead to misunderstanding and over-selling of discoveries and observations in neuroscience."

Women still missing from science, report shows; meanwhile, ideas for improvement are not

Women still missing from science, report shows; meanwhile, ideas for improvement are not | Women and science | Scoop.it
A report on the current state of women in science, commissioned by the Fondation L’Oréal and carried out by the Boston Consulting Group, was released yesterday. No real surprises, but a confirmation that all the efforts made in the name of attracting girls to science and retaining them are worth it and must continue. Ideas for more and more actions to improve...
MyScienceWork's insight:

According to Boston Consulting Group's report for the Fondation L'Oréal, there are still too few women in science. The need to keep pushing for change is strong and the L'Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science prize laureates are not short on ideas on this topic.

Grassroots Groups Work to Inspire Women To Code

Grassroots Groups Work to Inspire Women To Code | Women and science | Scoop.it
New organizations aim to introduce women to computing at the local level.
MyScienceWork's insight:

"Technology now touches a lot more people than it did, say, five years ago," she says. "Back then, for instance, there was no Facebook, no Twitter, both platforms that everyone uses today regardless of their background or where they live. So, in a sense, technology has been democratized; it’s no longer something people choose to avoid."

Excellence de la recherche et parité hommes-femmes : c’est possible !

Excellence de la recherche et parité hommes-femmes : c’est possible ! | Women and science | Scoop.it

L’équilibre entre les hommes et les femmes a longtemps été présenté comme un objectif important vers lequel tendre pour les universités et les institutions. Des progrès ont été clairement observés en ce sens au fil du temps. Ne peut-on cependant pas faire mieux ? Aujourd’hui en Europe, seulement 13% des directeurs des institutions de l’enseignement supérieur sont des femmes. Les racines du problème sont-elles trop profondes pour que l’on puisse les cerner, trop obscures pour que l’on puisse les aborder ? Simone Buitendijk, vice-recteur de l’université de Leiden, aux Pays-Bas, n’est pas de cet avis. « Ça n’a rien de mystérieux », assure-t-elle. « Nous savons ce qu’il faut faire ».

WAX was there! The European Gender Summit | Women and science | Scoop.it
We hear a lot about gender balance in science, but what about gender in the research itself? This point, covered at the 4th Gender Summit, held recently in Brussels, really left an impression on WAX Science, the association for stereotype-free science. Gender bias in research is not just about the numbers, as WAX explains. Learn more about the concept of gen...

II- Doctorat : les femmes, les disciplines et les étrangers

II- Doctorat : les femmes, les disciplines et les étrangers | Women and science | Scoop.it

En regardant par secteurs, on constate qu’en France, comme ailleurs, la proportion de femme augmente et tend vers la parité, mais avec de fortes différences entre disciplines. Contrairement à une idée reçue, notre situation en sciences, bien que médiocre sur le plan européen, est bien meilleure que la situation en SHS. Enfin, du fait taux élevé de nouveaux docteurs étrangers qui ne resteront pas en France, les chiffres globaux donnent une idée trop flatteuse de notre situation : en 10 ans le nombre de doctorants soutenus par des français baisse de 20 %. Pour atteindre 3 % du PIB pour la recherche, il faut d’aller vers un doublement du nombre de docteurs formés par an. (...) - par Henri Audier, SNCS, 27/02/214

Leading tomorrow’s interdisciplinary science: Google Science Fair Winner Brittanny Wenger | Women and science | Scoop.it
"Last summer, Florida high school student Brittanny Wenger was awarded first place in the Google Science Fair for building a cloud-based neural network to help doctors better detect breast cancer using a less invasive form of biopsy, known as Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA). The 18-year-old scientist spoke with International science grid this week (iSGTW) about her innovative ideas merging medicine and computer science, and the importance of multidisciplinary research. For sending a message to other young women that science is indeed a “girl thing”, Brittanny Wenger provides a far more powerful example."
