Weekly Round-up #154

Welcome to Weekly Round-up #154.

Tomorrow is the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. VALIDATE will be joining the global science community to recognise the critical role women and girls play in science and technology and to support full and equal access to and participation in science around the world.

Throughout tomorrow, VALIDATE will be celebrating the amazing work of our women members with a series of infographics. We'd love you all to get involved, by emailing us with a short and positive statement about being a woman in science if relevant, and by engaging on social media on Thursday and sharing information and our infographics to celebrate this day.
