Whilst born in the age of science, many young women struggle to become engaged or find the right path into the sector. For a long time, gender inequality has remained the greatest challenge and as a result the UN sponsored an annual international day for women in science. However, the day is not just about highlighted the gender imbalance in the industry but celebrating the achievements of women who have made outstanding contributions.
Speaking about the annual event, Princess Dr Nisreen El-Hashemite Executive Director of RASIT, stated that,
"Women in Science talents, perspectives, work methods and skills could be recognized worldwide on such a day for wide impact. Promotion of education for women in science and for their entry into scientific careers will also serve to build inclusive institutional climates within all countries, and allow policies and procedures to be crafted for gender equality, leadership training, and mentoring."
At OncoLytika, we are celebrating International Day of Women and Girls in Science by championing the the career of our Operations Manager, Annette Williams, who has been a woman in science for over 15 years. Following the completion of her honours degree in Chemistry, she worked in labs for a prominent local plant science company before starting her 12 year long career with the University of Cambridge in their Chemical Engineering Department.
We strongly believe having more women in science will allow for a greater capacity of research, development and teaching, and we are proud to support the campaign. For more information on the day see here.

This year we supported world cancer day by launching an online campaign via our Twitter and LinkedIn pages. The aim was to raise awareness of the great things that World Cancer Day can achieve.
This year, the World Cancer Day campaign wanted to highlighted the powers of sport and exercise in preventing cancer. Living a balanced and healthy life is an extremely important factor in the prevent of the disease. As a result, our team got involved with #WeCanICan by posting pictures of engaging in sport, thus being aware of its fantastic benefits.

This February we are supporting World Cancer Day by using our new social media platform to run an awareness campaign. Here at OncoLytika we want to use our industry position and expertise to help spread awareness of World Cancer Day and the amazing things it aims to achieve. With the numbers of new cancer cases and deaths increasing at a staggering rate it is more important than ever to support the industry to makes the waves necessary to fight cancer.
We will be using a social media platform to engage with the campaign by spreading the word. This year World Cancer Day are emphasising the fundamental importance of exercise and sport for our health. With regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle, we can all reduce our risk of getting cancer.
As a result, our team is getting involved with the World Cancer Day #WeCanICan campaign by supporting through sport. Members of our team will be engaging with sport - no matter if it is something they do every day or whether they want to get involved for the first time. By taking photos of our team supporting through sport we hope to raise awareness of the aims of World Cancer Day on the 4th February. Follow us on Twitter at @Oncolytika to see our awareness campaign.

We are pleased to announce that we have made our first leap onto social media. We want to use the opportunity to engage with a larger and more diverse range of people. Through the use of Twitter we can give regular and short updates on our business, allowing more people to see what we offer.
However, engagement on Twitter is two-way. We will be able to access the most current information from the science and technology industry, ranging from research activities and opportunities to conferences and events. Therefore, Twitter offers a fantastic opportunity not only for our business but our clients and partners.
