Network meeting women scientists of Wageningen

You are here

Dear Women Scientists of Wageningen, 


Last week the European chapter of 500 Women Scientists published a Call to Action. It highlights that science is integral to our society, and while it is well established that diversity leads to better science, women, people of colour, immigrants, LGBTQIA, and disabled people continue to face ubiquitous and well-known challenges in sciences across the world and across Europe. 


As a part of 500 Women Scientists we want to stand up to these inequalities, and empower women to grow to their full potential in science. As a first step in Wageningen, we are hosting a meet-up to grow our network of women scientists.

We invite you to join us, to discuss future actions via this network, and to at least get to know each other!
