In case you’ve missed it – International Women’s Day: Women ecologists provide strength in numbers

Encouraging girls into science is a tough ask, but one that surely benefits from role models. Nationally and internationally there is a recognition of the lack of representation of women in scientific jobs.

However, it’s clear that the Centre for Integrative Ecology (CIE) is bucking that trend – with excellent female representation in traditional STEM subject areas. There are currently 62 women in the CIE, out of a total of 139 members, including PhD students.
