Teagasc celebrating International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2020

The United Nations, partners worldwide, women and girls will mark Tuesday, 11th February 2020, as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. It’s an opportunity to take a stand for women and girls in science and to break the stereotypes that hold them back.

In support of this initiative, Teagasc is running a social media campaign (Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn and Instagram) featuring Teagasc Women in Science across various roles and research programme areas to show the diversity of careers available to women in science at Teagasc.

You too can get involved by:

  • Liking, sharing and commenting on posts
  • Posting your own photos of you at work on the above-mentioned social media platforms using the following hashtags and @symbols: #WomenInScience #Teagasc @Teagasc @UN_Women

For more information on the initiative see: http://www.unwomen.org/en/news/in-focus/international-day-of-women-and-girls-in-science#social 

In this booklet you can read about 77 talented women working in STEM in Teagasc. These are just some of the many women working in Teagasc who are contributing to the development of the Irish agri-food industry.
