International Day of Women and Girls in Science at IQCC 2024

This coming Sunday (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 (54%), PhD level (47%), postdocs (17%) and permanent researchers staff (29%). 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, this week Dr. Sílvia Simon will present the STEM film: Madame Curie (Radioactive) (Cinema Trufaut – Girona, 8th Feb). Also, Dr. Sílvia Simon will do a talk a #100tifiques (Institut Escola Mestre Andreu de Sant Joan les Abadesses) and will participate at TV program La Finestra (Olot TV). Also, Dr. Laia Vicens will participate at exposition “Ciència amb Denominació d’Origen Girona; Les nostres veïnes, les nostres científiques” (6-27/02, Girona).

Furthermore, 14 of our IQCC women (Dr. Anna Pla-Quintana, Dr. Sílvia Simon, Dr. Sílvia Osuna, Dr. Anna Roglans, Dr. Olga Stasyuk, MSc. Sílvia Escayola, MSc. Cristina Duran, MSc. Míriam Pujals, MSc. Najoua Choukairi, MSc. Laia Vicens, MSc. Helena Giramé, MSc. Anju Manickoth, MSc. Judit Gálvez, MSc.
