By organizing forums, we want to portray women who are an integral part of the innovative force across the scientific spectrum. Diversity in the workforce contributes to creativity, productivity, and innovation as organisations function more effectively with diversity of thought. Everyone’s experiences should inform and guide the direction of science and technical progression.
We believe that to enhance future scientific focus and significant breakthroughs we need to foster a shift in the culture of science, as diversity and inclusion becomes more important than ever in the search for ground-breaking innovation. The iWiS network wants to inspire women and men to collaborate and develop solutions that advance women in STEM to bring innovation and systemic change.
