Fulfilling the Crop Trust’s mission to ensure the conservation of the world’s crop diversity would not be possible without the vital work of dedicated scientists around the world. An increasing number of scientists in this field are women. They are leaders in a variety of areas, carrying out critical research on important crops, inspiring new generations of scientists and managing some of the world’s most important genebanks. As we continue to address the problems in our global food systems and adapt agriculture to climate change, the need for diverse, dedicated scientists to work in genebanks and other institutions that conserve crop diversity will only increase.
