Because they represent the LAM and make science shine, whether they are researchers, teacher-researchers, engineers, technicians or administrators, we have decided to honor them through a mosaic in which a number of women have agreed to take part.
This panorama illustrates that an astronomy laboratory is open to all. A particularly important message for young girls wondering about their future! At the LAM, women make up around a quarter of the workforce, and are present in all the professions that make up astronomy: female researchers study the solar system, planets, galaxies or astronomical instrumentation. But there are also women engineers and technicians working in all fields: optics, mechanics, administration, IT… Some of them have also won prestigious prizes and are helping to spread a taste for science among the younger generation. Well done, and thank you.
