How OWSD can help women scientists unleash their latent talents

Host: L. Donaldson

The Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World (OWSD) is an international organization founded in 1987 and based at the offices of The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS), in Trieste, Italy. It is a programme unit of UNESCO. OWSD is the first international forum to unite eminent women scientists from the developing and developed worlds with the objective of strengthening their role in the development process and promoting their representation in scientific and technological leadership.

OWSD provides research training (PhD fellowships), career development (Early Career fellowships) and networking opportunities (National Chapters) for women scientists throughout the developing world at different stages in their careers.
Among our aims are to change perceptions about the role of women scientists and enhance networking among women scientists. In this talk I will explain how we assist women to unleash their latent talents.
