International Day of Women and Girls in Science at IQCC

This coming Thursday (11th of February) is the International day of Women and Girls in Science. The IQCC has currently a rather favourable balance in gender ratio of staff members, both at the Master level (53%), PhD level (33%), postdocs (18%) and permanent researchers staff (28%). Notably, out of the 4 most recent permanent members, 2 are men and 2 are women, reinforcing one of the goals of the IQCC of striving to have a gender-balanced permanent staff in the near future.

In order to celebrate this day of the 11th of February, at 11h Dr. Sílvia Simon will give a lecture to 13-years old students from Institut Guillem Catà in Manresa, MSc. Carla Calvó at IES Tres Pins de Vallromanes and Dr. Anna Pla-Quintana at Escola Bonavista in Tarragona about #100tifiques. Furthermore, eight of our IQCC women (Dr. Anna Pla-Quintana, Dr. Sílvia SimonDr. Sílvia Osuna, Dr. Anna Roglans, MSc. Sílvia Escayola, MSc. Cristina Duran, MSc. Míriam Pujals, MSc. Najoua Choukairi) are participating in the International Day of Women and Girls in Sciencie initiative of UdG, where more than 50 researchers are being visible as #ExpertaUdG. Finally, at 17.30h, Dr. Sílvia Simon will present the film “Marie Curie” at Cinema Truffaut organized by the City Council of Girona.

We look forward to seeing you there!
