GS Testimonials

I felt that I learned so much. There appears to be a revolution in people's conceptualization of sex/gender.  Like all human constructs it is changing... The summit really changed my thoughts. For that I am very grateful.  Thank you for a wonderful summit

AIMS launches African Women in Science initiative at Next Einstein Forum

Next Einstein Forum

On 7th March, linked to the Next Einstein Forum, AIMS (African Institute of Mathematics Sciences) organized an African Women in Science (AWIS) workshop to identify priority actions to improve participation and advancement of African women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and invited Portia to facilitate the event. The workshop, organised by Karen Craggs-Milne,  Director of Gender Equality, Inclusion and Business Development, built on scientific evidence and experience of similar actions in other regions.  Specifically, it engaged important leaders and actors in adapting for African context the advice of science leaders in Europe subsequently reshaped by 600 participants attending the 3rd Gender Summit in Washington DC (led by the National Science Foundation) into the Roadmap for Action for North America. The expected outcome of the AIMS-AWIS workshop will be an outline of the Roadmap for Action for Africa, which will be developed, advanced and promoted through collaborations between AIMS, its partner organisations, as well as relevant stakeholders, in accordance to their needs and capacity to create change. Guiding this process was the AIMS-AWIS Expert Task Force, chaired by Dorothy Nyambi, AIMS Executive Vice-president, and the Advisory Committee of Leaders, led by Beatrice Njenga, Head of African Union’s Education Division. They reported on of the conclusions and recommendations from the Workshop at a plenary session at the Next Einstein Forum. Progress will be reported and promoted through future Gender Summits.
