#DearLittleScientist: the new social media campaign launched for the International Day of Women and Girls in Science 

Published On 06 February 2023

BEEYONDERS is taking part in the campaign organized by ICONS Innovation Strategies, in charge of Dissemination, Communication & Social Innovation activities within the project. Together with many other EU-funded projects, we celebrate the day for International Day of Women and Girls in Science with a message for future scientists.

According to UNESCO Institute for Statistics data, less than 30% of the world’s researchers are women.
Traditional education and the lack of support for young girls play a huge part in this process, but your experience can be helpful to empower them.

BEEYONDERS strives to make the construction industry safer, more accessible, and more inclusive, especially towards women, who have been historically kept at a distance from the sector. Therefore, we are happy to take part in this impactful campaign which aims at giving voice to present women scientists to empower and inspire future generations.

#DearLittleScientist campaign was launched among the researchers and scientists working on European research projects. We asked them to share a message for their inner selves: “What did you need to hear when becoming the scientist you are now?”.

The campaign starts on Monday, February 6th, and will reach its peak on February 11th, the day dedicated to this cause.

To join, just share your stories using the hashtag #DearLittleScientist.
