Diversity is crucial to excellence. At IGFAE, we stand behind this principle and firmly believe that every individual, irrespective of gender, race, religion, age and other social characteristics, should have the same opportunities in their a scientific career. Among others, scientific excellence involves:

  • Harnessing the potential of all the talent available.
  • Taking measures to facilitate conciliation between personal and professional responsibilities.
  • Promoting the development of the scientific career.

We want to promote these values and raise awareness at IGFAE on discrimination at the workplace. As a part of this effort, we will regularly post contents devoted to this topic, making use of publications in various media and hoping that they will be useful and interesting to you.

Today we would like to draw your attention to this 4-min-long video on why diversity in science is essential: https://youtu.be/IYulqH5yh_M
