EMBO (European Molecular Biology Organization) raise awareness of issues facing female scientists. Just as many women as men start out on life science careers. But many more men go on to senior academic positions. The reasons why are complex.
„In the best interest of the scientific endeavor it is important that the best scientists have the opportunity to pursue a career, and that it is not gender (or any other secondary characteristic) that determines the chances of success.
At EMBO, we are committed to monitoring gender balance in all our activities, developing initiatives to counteract imbalances and to raising awareness of issues facing women scientists as their careers advance.“
