Women in Science

The editorial in Nature for July 24, 2018 notes that in April, Nature announced two annual prizes: one recognizes excellent early-career female scientists, and the other acknowledges individuals or organizations that have led grass-roots initiatives to support increased access to, or interest in, science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) for girls and young women around the world. This week, we announce the candidates who have made the longlist of ten for each Nature Research award, and congratulate all of them. The impressive breadth and quality of all the entries deserve wide recognition, too. 
The two award categories are the Inspiring Science Award (early-career female scientists) and the Innovating Science Award (individuals or organizations supporting increased STEM access for girls). Winners will be announced in October. More information about these awards and the full longlists for the two awards, 10 in each category, are found in the July 24 editorial.
