Raising the profile of women in bryology

To celebrate the 7th International Day of Women and Girls in Science, IAB sends an invitation to all those who identify as women in bryology. The theme this year for the International Day of Women and Girls in Science is “Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion: Water Unites Us” and to put a slight twist on it for this launch we have  re-themed it: “Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion: Bryology Unites Us”. Our celebration for this day is the beginning of a project to raise the profile of women in bryology by posting online biographies of women across the globe who are involved in bryology. Please check out the IAB website to see our first contributors, written in both English and their native language.

The International Association of Bryologists (IAB) is an organization established in 1969 at the XI International Botanical Congress in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. The aim of the organization is to promote international cooperation and communication among all persons interested in the biology of bryophytes. This is achieved through sponsorship and arrangement of meetings and symposia that relate to the various aspects of bryology, and by IAB-sponsored publications including The Bryological Times and Bryophyte Diversity and Evolution. The Association also supports the publication of reviews, lists, software, and compendia.
