Celebrating Women and Girls in Science (February 11)

On February 11, UNESCO and UN-Women lead the annual International Day of Women and Girls in Science with the goal of raising awareness, achieving gender parity in educational opportunity, and scientific participation across the globe!

This year’s theme is centered around celebrating all of the women scientists at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19. In the AV space, we are proud to be members of many organizations and initiatives that support women in science. Read on to learn more about some of the amazing groups in the AV industry!
