The International Day of Women and Girls in Science is organized each year by UNESCO and UN Women. Both organizations work with national and intergovernmental organizations, community organizations, universities, and businesses to promote the role of women and girls in scientific fields, celebrate those already successful in their fields, and encourage others to be active in those fields. A theme is selected annually to highlight a particular focus and area of discussion.

The theme for 2023 is “Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion: Water Unites Us.”

“The UN reports point out that billions of people around the world will be unable to access safely managed household drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene services in 2030 unless access progress rates quadruple. Rising demand, poor management, and failure to conserve water resources, compounded by climate change, represent key challenges, urgently requiring a new sustainable holistic approach to support aligning strategies on water.” –
