Women and Science


The CSIC, sensitive to the problem of the low presence of women in the scientific tasks of the Institution, maintained since the creation of the CSIC itself, made the Governing Board approve in 2002 the Women and Science Commission with two particularly relevant objectives: to study the possible causes that make it difficult for women to enter and pursue a career and to propose to the Presidency possible actions to achieve equality between women and men in the CSIC. The CSIC is the first public and private research body in Spain that has created a Women and Science Commission: to study the possible causes that make it difficult for women to enter and pursue a career and to propose to the Presidency possible actions to achieve equality between women and men in the CSIC. The CSIC is the first public and private research body in Spain that has created a Women and Science Commission


The current Science, Technology and Innovation Law (Law 14/2011, of 1 June) has among its general objectives: "To promote the inclusion of the gender perspective as a transversal category in science, technology and innovation, as well as a balanced presence of women and men in all areas of the Spanish Science, Technology and Innovation System". The European Research Area (ERA, 2012) has as its fourth priority "Gender equality and the gender perspective in research, 

promoting gender diversity to foster scientific excellence". In addition, the UN through Agenda 2030 (Paris, 25 September 2015) established Sustainable Objective 5 "Gender Equality", which among other goals establishes "Ensure the full and effective participation of women and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political, economic and public life".
