#DearLittleScientist: the new social media campaign launched for the International Day of Women and Girls in Science

Press Release -

After the success of the last year's campaign #WomenScientistsPortraits, ICONS Innovation Strategies returns to celebrate the day for International Day of Women and Girls in Science with a message for future scientists.

According to UNESCO Institute for Statistics data, less than 30% of the world’s researchers are women.
Traditional education and the lack of support for young girls play a huge part in this process, but your experience can be helpful to empower them.
After the high interest in the campaign #WomenScientistsPortraits, launched in 2022, ICONS Innovation Strategies wants to celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, renewing the call to action.
This year, with a new target: to empower future scientists with a message sent directly from women who have already faced this journey.

#DearLittleScientist campaign was launched among the researchers and scientists working on the European research projects. We asked them to share a message for their inner selves: ” What did you need to hear when becoming the scientist you are now?”.

The campaign starts on Monday, February 6th and will reach its peak on February 11th, the day dedicated to this cause.
To join, just share your stories using the hashtag #DearLittleScientist.
