Science Engagement Days 2024: (More) Women in Research 5 – 8 March in Arusha, Tanzania
The global challenges we face demand innovative solutions from diverse perspectives in natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Embracing diversity enhances research quality.
Gender-inclusive research groups drive innovation in collective problem-solving. Unfortunately, despite increasing female education, less than 30% of global researchers are women and remain underrepresented in top academic positions.
To address this, Danida Fellowship Centre and MS TCDC have invited selected women researchers from the two organisations network to participate in the “(More) Women in Research” seminar on March 5–8, 2024, at MS TCDC in Arusha.
This international event aims to unite women researchers, offering networking, advice on navigating academia, and tools for advocacy. The workshop connects scholars across Africa, facilitating research sharing, reflection, and discussions on contemporary global challenges.
As part of MS TCDC’s series of Arusha Debates, the seminar will also feature an online debate to amplify the call for more women in research. This aligns with the Arusha Debates’ goal of addressing critical African issues and contributes to a more inclusive and impactful policy agenda.
