In 2015, the United Nations General Assembly decided to proclaim 11 February as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science with the aim of achieving full and equal access to science for girls and women.
This year IFISC joins forces with the CSIC Delegation in the Balearic Islands as well as with the other CSIC centers in the Balearic Islands to organize the activity "Conecta con las científicas del CSIC en Illes Balears". This free online activity is especially aimed at schools and will consist of two interactive live broadcasts on 9 and 10 February in which different researchers from the centers will talk about what they work on, their day-to-day work and the challenges they face. More details and instructions on how to access are available on the delegation's website.
From IFISC, the activity will be attended by PhD student Annalisa Caligiuri, who is currently working under the supervision of Tobias Galla and Lucas Lacasa on topics related to statistical physics and stochastic processes applied to opinion dynamics and complex networks.
In addition, IFISC is once again collaborating with the introductory workshop on programming for young people organized by Django Girls on Saturday 25 February at Parc Bit.
We take this opportunity to recall the results of the survey on the perception of the IFISC gender equality plan that were presented at the previous 11F and on which the gender equality and women's empowerment committee has been working over the last year.
