Today, we are celebrating the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. For Asphalion, this day poses a double celebration: on the one hand, our company is focused on science and by helping our clients in making science happen, patients can benefit of a smarter and faster drug development. On the other hand, women account for 70% of our workforce, so Asphalion´s DNA consists mainly in women and science.
Because of this, we have prepared a video that shows the progression of what some of Asphalion´s little scientific girls turned into, being at the forefront of ground-breaking technologies and scientific progress. This is our way of paying a tribute to all these little girls that turned into strong-willed, courageous, incredibly inspiring scientific women whose lives and careers touch us! We hope you will enjoy it!
The celebration of this day focuses on the reality that science and gender equality are both vital for the achievement of internationally agreed development goals, including the 2030 agenda for sustainable development. Over the past decades, the global community has made a lot of effort in inspiring and engaging women and girls in science. Yet women and girls continue to be excluded from participating fully in science. It is a task for all of us to create an environment where women can realize their true potential and today’s girls become tomorrow’s leading scientists and innovators, shaping a fair and sustainable future for all.
