Who we are​

We are a group of parent scientists who decided to face the mission of bringing knowledge about a topic that, until recently, was ignored in the scientific community: how does parenthood affect the career of scientists? Below, you will find more information about our Central Pod team!

In the "Ambassadors" tab you can find out who is part of the Parent in Science regional pods.

 
Our actions​

 

Since our foundation, we have presented dozens of seminars, lectures, talks and lives throughout Brazil and overseas, raising the discussion about motherhood and career.
We were pioneers in raising data to comprehensively assess the consequences of the arrival of children in the scientific career of women and men, at different stages of their academic career. We conducted an extensive survey on the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the lives of scientists here in Brazil.
Our actions led to concrete changes in the Brazilian scientific scenario, bringing motherhood to the center of the discussion. Today, different funding agencies and educational/research institutions consider maternity leave periods when analyzing curricula! A tremendous step forward, thanks to the mobilization of our group and its supporters!

Our mission​

Parent in Science was created in order to raise the discussion about parenthood within the universe of science in Brazil and Latin America. We started our actions to fill a void, of data and knowledge, about a fundamental issue: the impact of children on the scientific careers of women and men. We never imagined that we would have made it this far....but we know that we are just at the beginning of a very long journey. We appreciate everyone's support!
