Marie Francoise Roy will present the project “A Global Approach to the Gender Gap in
Mathematical, Computing, and Natural Sciences: How to Measure It, How to Reduce It?”
funded by the International Science Council. The main goal of the project was to investigate the gender gap in STEM disciplines from different angles, globally and across disciplines.

The project performed (i) a global survey of scientists with more than 32,000 responses; (ii) an investigation of the effect of gender in millions of scientific publications; and (iii) the compilation of best-practice initiatives that address the gender gap in Mathematical,
Computing, and Natural Sciences at various levels. The conclusion is that the gender gap is very real in science and mathematics. The project shares methodologies, insights, and tools that have been developed, as well as a set of recommendations.
