Women’s Day: Is Not about Excluding Men

On March 8 every year we celebrate the International Women’s Day all over the world. Of course it is not about excluding men, it is about celebrating and empowering women in our ocean science.

As we commemorate Women’s Day recently, it is an opportunity to honour the vital and endless contributions made by our women scientists to our ocean science.

We note the theme “Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow” adopted this year by the United Nations. At INOS, we are about inspiring the younger generations to go for a career in ocean science, irrespective of race and gender. Diversity is important. Don’t believe us? Science has proven that research benefits from a more diverse workforce.

We share here some photos of our women scientists making waves in ocean science.
