The United Nations chose 8 March as the “United Nations Day for Women’s Rights and World Peace” in the “International Year of Women 1975”. Today, we would like to commemorate the International Women’s Day by introducing 34 of our female staff members at the Leibniz Institute for the Analysis of Biodiversity Change (LIB). They are all an important part of our institute. Our institute strongly promotes equal access and opportunities for their employees, by providing a working environment that embraces diversity, equity and inclusiveness. Using the analogy in nature: an ecosystem with more species will function better than one with one species!

Get to know our international team of females at the LIB by clicking their portraits (a keyword gives you a hint of their main expertises).
