Fostering gender diversity in STEM

As the world’s largest scientific publisher and research technology company, Elsevier is in a unique position to address gender issues in the research community. In recognizing and working against gender issues, we aim to promote gender equality and diversity while also improving the overall quality of research.

Recently, Elsevier Chairman Youngsuk “YS” Chi attended a global policy dialogue in New Delhi organized by South Africa’s National Research Foundation during the 2016 annual meeting of the Global Research Council. Addressing government funders of scientific research from all over the world, he spoke about the measures Elsevier takes to ensure gender balance within our company, as well as the importance of considering gender as a factor in scientific research.
