Girls in Science 

Girls are the future of science and conservation.

 

Yet, according to the United Nations, women and girls continue to be excluded from participating fully in science. In 2016, when the UN announced the first ever International Women and Girls in Science Day (February 11th), they shared a recent study that found the probability of female students graduating with a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, and doctoral degree in science-related fields are 18%, 8%, and 2% respectively, while the percentage of male students are 37%, 18%, and 6%.  In an attempt to change these numbers in the United States, a bipartisan bill was introduced named Inspiring the Next Space Pioneers, Innovators, Researchers, and Explorers (INSPIRE) Women Act (H.R. 4755)

Women for Wildlife actively participates in Girls in Science programs across the United States.  To learn more about how to be part this innovative opportunity for girls to learn from and interact with women role models in science, click HERE.
