For the Future of Women in Science, Look to the Past | Nathalia Holt | TEDxPasadenaWomen
Nathalia Holt, author of "Rise of the Rocket Girls," inspires with key lessons from NASA's female pioneers. Artfully, Dr. Holt translates each historical reference into evidence for modern workplace reform and reiterates a powerful need for female mentorship. The long forgotten success of these frontier women in science transcends their generation, setting forth important lessons about how to recruit and retain women in science today as masterfully as it was done fifty years ago. Nathalia Holt Ph.D. is a science writer and bestselling author of Rise of the Rocket Girls: The Women Who Propelled Us from Missiles to the Moon to Mars, in which she chronicles an elite group of women’s’ contributions to rocket design, space exploration, and the first American satellite. Her second book: Cured: The People who Defeated HIV, recounts the story of two patients, each known in medical history as the Berlin Patient, who were cured of the HIV virus. One review states: “Nathalia Holt presents a thorough account of the research that provides scientists with hope that a cure will one day be achievable… and her empathy shines through in her prose. This is as important a social history as it is a medical document.” Her work has appeared in numerous publications, including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, The Atlantic, Slate, Popular Science and Time. Nathalia trained at the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT, Harvard University, University of Southern California and Tulane Univ This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Why Support Women and Girls in Science and Technology?
Despite progress in ensuring opportunities for women in STEM fields, women and girls continue to be systematically underrepresented as users and leaders in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. In order to achieve the sustainable development goals, we need to ensure full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls. February 11 is International Day of Women and Girls in Science. Join UN Women in celebrating women and girls in STEM fields, challenging stereotypes, and championing opportunities for women and girls in science and technology.

International Day of Women and Girls in Science
Science is critical to addressing the social and environmental challenges that confront us. The world needs science more than ever, and science needs everyone – including women. Makes sense, right? And yet, according to the 2015 UNESCO Science Report, women account for only 28% of researchers across the world, and are even less represented at the higher echelons of decision-making. Women are interested and capable in STEM, so why such underrepresentation? Largely because of the persistence of gender stereotypes and biases. The Ontario Science Centre is adding its voice to International Day of Women and Girls in Science, advocating publicly for parity in science for women. Science needs women.

Women in Science: CERN physicist, Sofia Vallecorsa
With 11 February marking the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, female physicists, engineers and computer scientists from CERN and from Fermilab share their experiences of building a career in science. Italian physicist Sofia Vallecorsa always knew that she wanted to study science. Her mother was a physicist and her father a mathematician, so it felt natural to her to choose a physics degree. During her studies she saw computing simply as a tool, but as time went on her love for computing grew. Computing was interesting because it was challenging. “Coding reminded me of being a kid playing with a challenging problem. It felt so rewarding when I found the solution.” - Sofia Vallecorsa After her studies she moved into computing and now works in the CERN physics department providing software tools for the experimental physicists. Coming to computing via a different background, meant making more effort to learn things for herself. But this taught her to face challenges one step at a time to reach her goal. “I use a lot of machine-learning in my work and this was something that I had to learn from scratch. Yet it is so interesting and important to many fields and has really expanded my horizons to work with experts outside of particle physics,” she exclaims.

Too Few Women in Science
This is the VOA Special English Education Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com Two new studies have investigated why fewer females, compared to males, study and work in the so called STEM subjects in the United States. Those subjects are science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The American Association of University Women examined existing research. Its report, called Why So Few?, also suggested ways to interest more girls and women in the STEM fields. The researchers found that cultural and environmental factors make a difference. Researcher Christianne Corbett says more boys than girls score very high on math tests in most countries. She says Iceland and Thailand are exceptions. In those countries, more girls than boys scored above the ninety-ninth percentile in math. The other study was carried out by the Campos company for the Bayer Corporation in the United States. It asked more than one thousand women and minority members of the American Chemical Society about their experiences. Seventy-seven percent said not enough women and minorities are working in STEM professions today. This is because they were not identified or urged to study those subjects in school. Bayer USA Executive Director Rebecca Lucore says its study produced results similar to the AAUW research. She says the survey showed there is still a lot of work to be done. Rebecca Lucore notes that students say their interest in science begins before the age of eleven. So it is important to have science programs for students in elementary school. Why is it so important for girls and women to be involved in science? Christianne Corbett has one answer. She says increasing diversity in professions leads to better products, and better science. Expanding and developing this science and engineering workforce is important for the nations productivity and competitiveness. Rebecca Lucore says scientific professions need more and better workers. She says all citizens should understand science. And she says it is important for everyone in the workforce to be able to think creatively, work in teams and adapt to change. And thats the VOA Special English Education Report. Is science a popular field of study for girls in your country? You can comment at our Web site at voaspecialenglish.com.

Encouraging Math-Hating Girls and Women to Become Tech Leaders | Emily Avant | TEDxBeaconStreet
From STEM to STEAM: Encouraging Math-Hating Girls and Women to Become Tech Leaders. In spite of our best efforts to steer more girls towards STEM (i.e., Science Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) interests, the technology industry is still a very male-dominated field. I believe that the technology industry can address this gender imbalance by welcoming girls and women who may have strayed from the STEM path back into the world of tech. Girls and women who have strong imaginations, creative talents, and the ability to "dream big" have special gifts that can lead to the development of revolutionary technology. Let's broaden our focus from STEM to STEAM (where the "A" stands for "arts") and empower women and girls with diverse backgrounds to succeed in the tech industry. Emily Avant is a technology attorney and STEAM (i.e., Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) evangelist. She focuses on drones, mobile applications, and “big data,” and led the efforts of her company, CNN, in obtaining the first license from the federal government to operate drones over people. Emily is a passionate advocate for gender equality in the technology industry and believes in creating opportunities for girls and women to succeed in the field of tech at all stages of their lives. Emily lives in Atlanta with her husband, Sewell, and two children. She is an avid kayaker and is a voracious consumer of news and politics.

International Day of Women and Girls in Science - António Guterres (UN Secretary-General)
Video message by H.E. Mr. António Guterres, United Nations Secretary-General, on the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science (11 February), aired at the Third International Day of Women and Girls in Science Forum Both girls and boys have the potential to pursue their ambitions in science and mathematics, in school and at work. But systemic discrimination means women occupy less than 30 percent of research and development jobs worldwide. We need concerted, concrete efforts to overcome stereotypes and biases. One starting point is banishing the predominantly male images of scientists and innovators on social media, in textbooks and in advertising. We need to encourage and support girls and women achieve their full potential as scientific researchers and innovators. Women and girls need this, and the world needs this, if we are to achieve our ambitions for sustainable development on a healthy planet. Throughout history, from Hildegard of Bingen to Wangari Maathai, women scientists have built our world. It’s time to support and invest in them.

Powerful Speech by 10 year old on Artificial Intelligence & Empathy - Girls in Science
Statement by Anya Daneez Khan, age 10, on the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science (11 February). --------- February 11th marks the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. The theme for 2019 is “Investment in Women and Girls for Inclusive Green Growth,” and a two-day event began today (11 Feb) at UN Headquarters in New York, bringing together global experts and leaders to evaluate the economic and social impact of women’s participation in science-based sustainable development programmes. The event featured a high-level panel focusing on the public-sector financing of science for green growth, investment to attract and retain high calibre women in science, and financing to ensure gender equality in science. Anya Daneez Khan, a girl in the field of science, said “The reason we celebrate this Day is to make sure it becomes not a story about exceptional women but a norm that girls belong and succeed in science and technology.” The United Nations General Assembly in 2015 declared 11 February as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science in order to achieve full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls, and further achieve their empowerment as well as gender equality.

Are women bad at science?
If you scroll through lists of STEM faculty members at most universities, it's likely you'll recognize a pattern...that is, a lot of men and not very many women. Why is that? Are men inherently better than women at science? Or is there something else going on?

Women In Science
On International Day of Women and Girls in Science, 11 February 2019, we celebrated women and girls who are leading innovation and call for actions to remove all barriers that hold them back. At AstraZeneca, women make up 60% of our science workforce. However, less than 30 per cent of researchers worldwide are women. We recognise that long-standing biases and gender stereotypes are still steering girls and women away from science related fields.
