Invitation to the 24th Gender Summit (GS24): Uniting the values of scientific excellence and social progress in knowledge, practice and communication.

The aim of GS24 is to celebrate the positive changes that have taken place since the first Gender Summit in 2011 and, from the perspective of its theme, to examine where additional improvements are needed.

• Equity for women in science today: conclusions from a deep dive into research evidence
• Innovations in science knowledge-making
• Systematising representations of intersectionality dimensions in research studies
