February 11 is the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. The UN uses it to promote gender-equal access to careers in science. The Thünen Institute supports this cause. To promote gender equality and family-friendliness in the workplace, we have also been participating in the "audit berufundfamilie" since 2021.
On this page, six of our 279 female scientists at the Thünen Institute provide insights into their work. The examples are intended to encourage women to pursue a scientific career, but not to hide the sometimes difficult working conditions.
