The GYA’s Women in Science Working Group aims to have the voice of women scientists widely heard to reach policy and decision makers with the target of a better future for female scientists. Moreover, the group aims to raise broad awareness to the not-fully-exploited potential of female intellectualism.

As part of its ongoing efforts, Women in Science has started developing an online mentorship programme for young female scientists led by Ghada Bassioni (Egypt) and Tatiana Martins (Brazil). The mentorship programme will provide young women scientists all over the world with the opportunity to be mentored by GYA members and experienced scholars with the mission to direct, stimulate and coordinate young women scientists in achieving professional and personal success and fulfilment.
