Celebrating women in science
Join us in celebrating the International Day of Women and Girls in Science! On this occasion Bioversity International and CIAT feature some of our very own women scientists working to promote and safeguard agrobiodiversity, and improve food systems.
Bioversity International and the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) are proud and happy to promote full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls. We at CGIAR are using the opportunity of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science to feature some of our women scientists, their thoughts and their work.
Read on to see what inspired them to pursue a career in science, and in working to promote agrobiodiversity and improve the sustainability of our food systems.
