“Our women scientists, doctors, and frontliners are the brains, heart, and soul of our nation’s pandemic response,” Department of Science and Technology-Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) Director Josette T.

She challenged all SEI employees to continue to campaign and mainstream gender equality in all of the institute’s programs, projects, and activities.
