‘Gender Gap in Science’ Project
ICIAM was a supporting organization for the project, “A Global Approach to the Gender Gap in Mathematical, Computing, and Natural Sciences: How to Measure It, How to Reduce It?” serving as a supporting applicant, with membership on the executive committee and advisory board for the project. Funded by the International Science Council to produce data to better understand this gender gap and to support choices of interventions that international unions can feasibly undertake to address this gap. This project produced a final report with data collected which quantify the gender gap worldwide and which includes information about recommended interventions. This report can be downloaded here.
