In order to achieve full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls, and further achieve gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls, the United Nations General Assembly declared February 11 as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science in 2015.

The purpose of the day is to achieve full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls. On this #InternationalDayofWomenandGirlsinScience, listen to some of Vanderbilt University’s talented faculty describe how they’re helping to mold future generations of scientists and make the field more inclusive on YouTube’s “Paving the Way: “Developing future leaders in science.”
