March 2016. Women are under-represented in sciences, with less than one scientist over three being a woman. Ifremer, the French Marine Research Institute, has been working at reducing inequalities in the past years. The presence of women at medium and high management levels has climbed from 19% to 38% over the past sixteen years. Is it the result of a supply (more graduated female scientists) or a demand (on purpose gender equity policy)? What is sure is that every 8th of March Ifremer remembers that women are part of its valuable assets.
