The Vice Chancellor, University of Lagos, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, says the perspective, creativity and pragmatism that women bring to bear in science cannot be ignored by any country interested in developing rapidly.

Ogundipe said this at a virtual/physical grand finale essay competition put together by the Lagos branch of the Organisation for Women in Science for Developing World (OWSD) in Lagos on Thursday.

He was represented by the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Development Services, Prof. Folashade Ogunsola.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the organisation was formerly known as the Third World Organisation for Women in Science (TWOWS).

It is an international organisation that aims to provide research training, career development and networking opportunities for women scientists, throughout the developing world at different stages in their career.
