International Day of Women and Girls in Science
The 11th of February marks the United Nations' International Day of Women and Girls in Science. The Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics and the Institute for Gravitational Physics at Leibniz University Hannover celebrate the event by highlighting female researchers and their work at the institutes.
The institute acknowledges that structural discrimination in science exists and that the individual effort to encourage women (and other minorities) to work in science is only one part of the necessary change. We therefore strive to achieve equality and work to prevent and eradicate existing gender related and systemic discrimination. We are committed to create a more welcoming atmosphere for everyone. All of our employees are important in advancing this process.
