At scientifyRESEARCH, we are on a mission to empower researchers with funding information and enable the best research funding decisions. In celebration of International Women’s Day, we are hosting this webinar to discuss empowering women in research. We will talk about what we know best – research funding. Judy Mielke, Founder of scientifyRESEARCH, will share information about research funding dedicated to women.
This year, we are honored to have two guest speakers who have dedicated their time and attention to empowering women in research via Higher Education Resource Services-East Africa (HERS-EA), an educational non-profit organization incorporated in 2014 in Uganda and hosted at Makerere University Gender Mainstreaming Directorate. An affiliate of HERS Denver, Colorado, USA, HERS-EA advances women in East Africa (Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda) using similar strategies to those of HERS. The goal of the HERS-EA is to raise the proportion of women in leadership and management positions especially in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in East Africa to at least 50%. During this webinar, you will learn about the research driven interventions they implement
