The International Day of Women and Girls in Science is celebrated on this Saturday, February 11th. For us, it is an opportunity to honor the multiplier power of the voices that every day help us to transform the future in a fair and inclusive way.

The celebration was established in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) to highlight gender inequality, with emphasis on the areas of Exact Sciences, Engineering and Computing, stimulating the training and participation of women in scientific and technological research.

At Vale, our women scientists work on various initiatives, such as reducing the need for water in ore processing, analysis of climate phenomena and protection of the Amazon. 

Since 2010, our company has fostered scientific research and shared knowledge in the area through the Vale Technological Institute – Sustainable Development, located in Belém (Pará state), and ITV (Vale Technologic Institute), in Ouro Preto and Santa Luzia (Minas Gerais state).

In addition, Vale understands that the presence of women is fundamental for a more egalitarian and sustainable future. That is why, in 2019, we committed to doubling the number of women in our company by 2025.
Learn more about our commitments, achievements and advances in gender equity.

Campaign on our social networks

From next Monday, February 13, Vale will present stories about women scientists at the head of major projects at the company, which contribute to advances in the care of the Environment.

The objective of the campaign “Women who inspire Women” is to show that the participation of women in science makes a difference and inspires future scientists. After all, we know that every day a woman transforms the future, moves the world with her actions and inspires other girls and women.
