I warmly welcome you to join us for the fourth International Day of Women and Girls
in Science Forum, to be held from 11 – 12 February 2019 at the United Nations
Headquarters in New York.  

Since its inception in 2016, the International Day of Women and Girls in Science
Forum has been one of the flagship events of the United Nations and a key event
for women and girls in science, science experts, policy-makers and diplomates to
gather and share their vision, expertise and best practices to achieve Equality and
Parity in Science for Sustainable Development.

For the 2019 Forum, the Program Committee aims to develop a technical program
that will showcase best practices and solutions to move Investment in Women and
Girls in Science for Inclusive Green Growth into the mainstream discourse, and to
identify implementation gaps and create an International Framework and Action
Plan for Investment in Science for Inclusive Green Growth.

Interventions are required at several stages and with policy tools as well as
focused programs to shift priorities, investments, perceptions on women’s and
girls’ place in STI, and institute practical measures that directly respond to barriers
that hinder women’s and girls’ success. The Forum will explore innovative ways to
ensure coherence among the thousands of initiatives that are mushrooming to
ensure scale and value added.

To this end, abstracts relating to best practices and innovative solutions are highly
welcomed. We hope the International Day of Women and Girls in Science Forum
will be a platform for you to share your ideas and experiences with peers around
the globe, and to contribute towards the common goal of Equality in Science for
Sustainable Development.

Looking forward to meeting you on 11 and 12 February 2019 at the United Nations
Headquarters.
