CERN Accelerating science


WIT is Women In Technology at CERN.

We are seeing unprecedented progress in gender equality and female participation at all levels in our societies. Initiatives are multiplying all around the world to promote equality and propel women to be leaders in their fields.

  • an active, supportive environment where issues can be raised safely.
