Working with ten other UN specialised agencies, ICGEB has contributed to the latest publication on SDG5 – Gender Equality.

Beyond this, ICGEB provides positive role models for young girls wishing to pursue a career in science or science diplomacy and is striving to reach a positive gender balance in its key scientific roles.
