Nathalie Cabrol speaks at the United Nations

By: , Posted on: May 29, 2020

On February 11, the United Nations hosted an assembly for their International Day of Women and Girls in Science. Nathalie Cabrol, who is the Director of the SETI Institute and an Elsevier author, was invited to speak at the assembly.

According to Rebecca McDonald, Head of Communications and Outreach at the SETI Institute, “In her speech, Nathalie recognized the challenges many women face in their pursuit of a career in science. Some of these challenges include delaying or forgoing parenthood, harassment, and cultural and societal biases. Nathalie emphasized the importance of equity in terms of access to education and career opportunities, as well as pay and recognition for talent and work.”
