Nature Research and The Estée Lauder Companies launch global awards to celebrate inspirations for women in science

(9 April 2018, London | Melville, New York) With women making up less than a third of the world’s researchers and facing barriers to pursuing long-term careers that lead to senior positions in science, Nature Research and The Estée Lauder Companies have launched two global awards today that seek to put a spotlight on both exceptional achievements of female scientists and those working to promote greater inclusiveness.

The inaugural Nature Research Awards for Inspiring Science and for Innovating Science, in partnership with The Estée Lauder Companies, will recognize inspirational early-career female researchers and those who have worked to champion women and girls’ participation in science. The Inspiring Science Award honors female scientists who have excelled in scientific discovery and have completed their PhD within the last ten years. The Innovating Science Award recognizes an individual or an organization that has led a grassroots initiative to support increased access to, or interest in, STEM subjects for girls and women around the globe.
