After the announcement of the elected President Sebastián Piñera about ministers that will lead the government areas, the number of women seems low: 7 against 16.

Although gender equity has not been the main focus of news on this announcement, I consider that this kind of decisions open the discussion about the profile of the future minister of science, when this project finally becomes a reality. 
"We need more women leading public positions and we need more inclusion in the broad sense of the word".

We need more women leading public positions and we need more inclusion in the broad sense of the word. Recognizing the disciplinary diversity and understanding that "Science" involve several fields, such as Arts, Social Science, Humanities and Physics, Math and Engineering.
