Let's explore some statistics about women soil scientists.
In the United States of America, 29% of soil scientists are women
Globally, female represent 32% of total global members in
soil science societies
(Dawson et al., 2021)
Soil Science Ladies is a community that empowers women and all marginalized communities in the soil sciences. What started as a hashtag has now evolved into a movement, highlighting women's contributions to the development of soil science and narrating the stories of women who are currently making history.
We truly appreciate and celebrate every individual and their unique differences. We are dedicated to taking steps that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion for all women and marginalized communities in soil and other sciences. We trust that our members and visitors will uphold these values of respect and appreciation.
Thanks for being a part of our community!
