Gender Parity in the Research Context

On the occasion of the recently celebrated World Science Day for Peace and Development 2017, Ambassador Maira Mora engaged in the Plenary Session 1: The Role of Gender Equality in ERA Development of the Genera conference “Accelerating ERA Development by Promotion of Gender Equality in STEM Research”.

The event was a timely occasion to point out how the Baltic TRAM advances women in project management positions. It also allowed to present a number of specific strands of the CBSS Baltic 2030 Action Plan, which set in motion the promotion of gender parity across the Baltic Sea Region.
