Each year the International Women's Day is globally celebrated on March 8th. Everyone can make a difference to help build a more gender equal world. Therefor the Minerva Stifung also feels strongly committed to women's equality and as it is a big day for inspiration and change we have asked three of our former Minerva Fellows about their thoughts on how to empower female scientists.
Topographies of the exile: By means of a Minerva short term research grant, the art historian Dr. Oliver Sukrow could conduct research at the National Library of Israel, Jerusalem, in August 2019 on the varied oeuvre of Lea Grundig. The Dresden born Jewish-German artist lived and worked in the British mandated territory of Palestine from 1940 until 1948.
In May 2020 Dr. Andrea Flack received the research award for scientists working in the fields of biological and biomedical research which is funded by the Minna-James-Heineman-Sitftung and administered by the Minerva Stiftung.
