Women in science without borders-WISWB
For equality in the sake of reaching sustainability for a better future.
A new initiative, network and movement for women in science without borders was founded by Amal Amin, associate professor at National Research Center, Egypt, to empower women in science, whether seniors or young with excellence and cooperation with their males colleagues inside scientific communities, to raise the value and impact of scientific research in favor of sustainable development goals. The initiative began in 2017 by holding its first meeting in Cairo. The conference was a mix of scientific lectures, discussions, and students’ interactions and competitions to create a complete healthy scientific atmosphere between seniors and young both males or females.

The second conference was organized by one of the participants at the first conference (prof. Sonali Das) and asked to transfer it to South Africa. The conference was held in the University of Johannesburg, 21-23 March 2018.

The 2019 conference was held again in Cairo in March as the month of several events dedicated to women to honor their daily-life contribution generally and as scientists specifically with highlighting the need for further cooperation with males partners in all scientific communities in academia, research centers, industry, private sector, NGOs and in all aspects of life to be a role model for all society.

The fourth event, in February 2020, took place for the first time out of the African continent, in Rio de Janeiro, with the support of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences. It was organized by Prof. Marcia C. Barbosa, Prof. Carolina P. Naveira-Cotta, and Prof. Andrea Simone Stucchi de Camargo.
