A survey carried out by the British Council, a non-profit organization in the United Kingdom, reveals that women occupy only 2% of political leadership positions in science and technology in Brazil, although they are the majority among undergraduate and doctoral students. The study, based on data from CNPq and Inep, still shows that they represent 51% of the authors of scientific publications.


The entity also identified that white women represent 59% of all scholarship recipients, while black women make up only 26.8% of the total. The complete survey will be released on Monday (23), during the Gender Summit event, held by the British Council, CNPq and the organization Portia.
