The Mawazo Institute, a non-profit research institute based in Nairobi, Kenya, is seeking nominees for its upcoming E-book profiling of African women who are using science to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mawazo Institute is looking for exceptional female African researchers, practitioners, innovators, educators, tinkerers, and makers of all stripes who are helping the public and decision-makers navigate the current crises. This includes women who are working on research into the virus and its vaccines, as well as those engineering policy solutions that help mitigate the socio-economic and political effects of the pandemic, and much more.
Nominees’ work will have a focus on building long-term resilience to future crises on the continent and will showcase the many ways that African women engage in science and the deep influence of science over our daily lives. Scientists may be located on, or off the continent at the time of nomination.
