Message by HRH Prince Adnan El-Hashemite
The Dean of The Royal Academy of Science International Trust
On the Occasion of the adoption of the UN General Assembly
Resolution 70/212

22 December 2015

"I welcome today’s adoption of the resolution on the
“International Day of Women and Girls in Science”. It
demonstrates the continuing resolve and commitment of
Member States to eliminate gender inequality in science,
employment, opportunities and education.

By calling for an International Day of Women and Girls in
Science, the General Assembly is positioning itself to address
concerns that require the deliberative, multilateral authority of
the Assembly for effective implementation and follow-through.

Together, we must prioritize quality, equality and parity in
science, empower women and girls in science, and provide
comprehensive assistance and empowerment to transforming
the world in dignity and peace by eliminating the gender
disparity in science education at all levels... "
United Nations Secretary-General's Message

"For too long, discriminatory stereotypes have
prevented women and girls from having equal
access to education in science, technology,
engineering and math (STEM). As a trained
engineer and former teacher, I know that these
stereotypes are flat wrong. They deny women and
girls the chance to realize their potential – and
deprive the world of the ingenuity and innovation
of half the population.

On this International Day, I urge commitment to
end bias, greater investments in STEM education
for all women and girls as well as opportunities for
their careers and longer-term professional
advancement so that all can benefit from their
ground-breaking future contributions."

secure. One which enables them to reach their full
potential in life, by working counter, the impediments
that exists, You are helping the next generations of
women scientists, mathematicians and leaders to
comfortably  taken their rightful places in society. I
commend you to your work."
