Abstract

The 2nd International Women in Science Without Borders (WISWB) Indaba brings the WISWB series from the north of the African continent where the inaugural chapter was held in Egypt in 2017, to the very south of the African continent, Johannesburg, in 2018. The WISWB conference series is strategic and topical in that it aims to highlight and emphasise the contribution of women researchers within the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) ecosystem to effect positive outcomes. Is this important to continuously explore why and how women STEM researchers are an indispensable asset, and to understand the values and richness they bring to a research environment. WISWBIndaba is a
gender-inclusive conference as researchers more often than not work in a multi-gender workplace. The overarching theme of our conference in 2018 is: “Resilience in Diversity”.
