Women in Science

Celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science by sharing a special tribute. 


Observe the International Day of Women & Girls in Science on 11 February and post a tribute today to a teacher, colleague or supervisor, or just a scientist who whose life and career inspired you. Your tribute will be automatically posted on the @OpticalSociety Twitter and Facebook accounts and stay engaged on social media using the hashtags #WomenInScience and #WomenInOptics.

We encourage you to learn more about OSA’s diversity, equity and inclusion efforts and donate to the OSA Foundation (OSAF) Annual Fund. OSAF programs support diversity and inclusion in the community as well as professional development and mentoring for students and early-career members. 


Commemorate the Women of Optics and Photonics Today!

Join us in honoring women who have made an impact on your research, career or life by submitting your tribute story.
