The Global Young Academy is pleased to welcome 39 new members to its ranks. All new members were inaugurated at the opening of this year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 13 June 2022.
The GYA new member cohort includes representatives from 24 individual countries, from all GYA general disciplines, and includes 19 females, 19 males and 1 who prefers not to say.
The gender ratio of the GYA is now 101 female/98 male/1 non-binary. Such gender balance is a development that the GYA has been moving towards for the last few years, and is a reflection of the excellent female/non-binary applicants to the GYA.
In addition to helping the GYA maintain its gender parity benchmarks, the new member cohort has increased GYA international representation by 2 countries, Mongolia and Greece. The GYA now has members or alumni in over 100 countries!
Welcome all to the GYA!
