International Day of Women and Girls in Science | 2021

On December 22, 2015, the United Nations General Assembly established February 11 as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science “to recognize the critical role women and girls play in science and technology”.

With this post we want to recognize and profile women in statistical sciences at CANSSI Ontario partner universities.
