Welcome to a Fast Takes #WomenInScience podcast honoring the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. Celebrated on February 11th, this United Nations initiative recognizes the critical role of women and girls in science and technology communities and calls for strengthening of their participation in STEM fields. Did you know that today, just 30% of researchers are women, and only 35% of all students enrolled in STEM-related fields of study are women? At Kessler Foundation, 70% of our staff are women making major contributions to the advances we achieve in rehabilitation research that changes the lives of people with disabilities.

Episode 12 features Dr. Olga Boukrina, a research scientist in our Center for Stroke Rehabilitation Research. Producer Joan Banks-Smith interviews Dr. Boukrina about her work at the Foundation, how mentors have influenced her career choices, and her most memorable experiences while working in science.
