The 11th of February marks the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, celebrating those who are thriving in scientific fields, leading in innovation, and thus contributing in removing gender barriers worldwide.
As the fourth industrial revolution starts, women still have less than two-third of the economic opportunity that men have and the rise in jobs driven by technology and innovation could widen the gender gap.
By encouraging the creativity and innovation in science for women and girls, and proper investment in inclusive education and research and development, we have an extraordinary opportunity to leverage the potential of women and girls to our society’s benefit.
At Prodesign, we firmly believe in equal opportunities and the potential of women in general in the engineering field. As a MEP consultancy firm, by employing young women as M&E engineers and by providing them with training programs and career growth opportunities, we are committed to foster a new generation of accomplished scientists to address today’s major challenges.
