Inspiring the next generation of women in science in the Global South

Published: 2022-08-10

IFS is once again partnering with Dr Ramesh Laungani, Chair of the Science Department, at Poly Prep Country Day School and founder of the 1000 STEM Women project - a global video library created by women working in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths (STEM).

The 1000 STEM Women project was created to increase the visibility of women role models around the world. These videos are freely available to any educational institution and provide a resource for students around the world to learn about the variety of careers available in the sciences and the breadth of on-going research.

The mission of the 1000 STEM Women Project is in line with the objectives of the IFS Gender Strategy. By supporting this initiative, IFS not only hopes that grantees will develop skills that are useful for communicating their research effectively, but also that diversifying the role-models in science, will inspire more girls in the Global South, and worldwide, to pursue scientific careers later in life.

The workshop will be held on August 11-12, and it is aimed at women who received an IFS grant in 2021. It explores how to tailor language to non-scientific audiences by minimising the use of technical language. Participants will have the opportunity to fine-tune a script and record their own video for the 1000 STEM Women project.
