UNESCO, in close cooperation with the International Mathematical Union (IMU), organizes a workshop to discuss the gaps in gender data in science. The workshop entitled “A Global Approach to the Gender Gap in Mathematical and Natural Sciences: How to Measure It, How to Reduce It? Will discuss a global approach to narrowing the gender gap in mathematics and natural sciences as well as sharing gender statistics from regional perspectives, and defining new indicators used to measure gender equality.
The objective of the workshop is to identify sources of good practices; specify methodologies; discuss gaps in research on gender; identify data sources and discuss management, organization and communication between partners.
