Event Details

Despite decades of activism and progress in reducing gender disparities in the sciences, there are still significant institutional biases keeping women out of key research, leadership, and policy roles. Gender equity in climate science is critical because the contributions of women often ensure that mitigation and adaptation solutions are more inclusive and effective.

During Women’s History Month, National Academies is showcasing the role of women in climate science and climate leadership. Amanda Staudt (National Academies Climate Crossroads) will moderate a conversation with Kripa Jagannathan (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory), Miriam Gay-Antaki (University of New Mexico) and Monica Sanders (The Undivide Project and Georgetown University) exploring how institutions and governments can elevate women climate scientists, from those shaping climate change research and policy solutions to those pioneering community engagement and climate action.

The webinar will be webcast on the Climate Conversations: Women in Climate Science webpage on Friday, March 22, 2024 from 12:30 to 1:45pm ET. Closed captioning will be provided. The conversation will include questions from the audience and will be recorded and available to view on the page after the event.
