The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) and the CTBTO Youth Group(CYG) launched a mentoring program, the first of its kind for the Organization, for early-career women in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) from under-represented geographical regions.
The hybrid initiative was organised in collaboration with the International Gender Champions(IGC), a leadership network of decision-makers from international organizations, Permanent Missions to the United Nations (UN) and Vienna-based international organizations, civil society groups and the private sector to promote gender equality.
The two-month long program supported a cohort of 12 mentees - aged 22 to 33 - hailing from Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East, South and South-East Asia, and the Pacific. They were paired with mentors from various scientific and technical fields from CTBTO’s three technical Divisions: The International Monitoring System (IMS), the International Data Centre (IDC), and On-Site Inspection (OSI).
