Women in science: developments and recommendations (2022)


Published by the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina

(2022, 32 pages)

The science community in Germany continues to be male-dominated – especially in high-level positions at universities and non-university research institutions. The exodus of women begins after their doctorate and deprives the scientific system of diversity and creativity. The statement “Women in science: Developments and recommendations”, released by the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina, discloses the reasons behind the persistent underrepresentation of women and presents measures to counteract this issue.
