It is my greatest pleasure to address you today and to congratulate you on the International Women’s Day! Of course, science is not a gendered issue, but it so heartening to realize that so many women have в decided to dedicate their life to science. Despite the burden of other tasks, including caring for your families, you tirelessly and diligently move science forward day after day. I am especially glad to see more and more women in science, and Skoltech is a prime example of this trend. A third of our PhD program graduates and over 40 percent of the Master’s class in 2020 are women. This trend is the future, and you are its brightest part!
I wish you more interesting scientific pursuits, relentless delight in your work, and, of course, love and happiness! I am sure the men of Skoltech share my greetings!!!
