The overarching goal of Women for Science at Nencki is to promote the interests of female scientists and advocate for gender equality in Academia. Our community is welcoming not only to women and gender minorities at Nencki, but to everyone who is interested in promoting gender equality in science and research.
Even though the involvement of women in science has continued to grow, they are still underrepresented in many fields and face significant challenges at all levels of their scientific careers. The glass ceiling is far from broken. Join us to learn how we can face these challenges.

We aim to organize a series of events dedicated to open discussion about gender equality and ways to support women at different career stages. and Moreover, we intend to build a platform for female networking and mentorship.
The topics we plan to highlight in lectures and panel discussions with guest speakers and experts include i.e. leadership, work/life balance, discrimination, gender bias in Academia, mentorship, approaches to conflict resolution, and gender pay gap.
All are welcome…
We encourage fellow male scientists to join us and openly share their thoughts and opinions. Your point of view is much appreciated since our objective is to build an inclusive and open-minded community. We count on your involvement!
