Hybrid Event: How to Evaluate and Reduce the Gender Gap in science?

The Standing Committee for Gender Equality in Science (SCGES) was established in September 2020. “The Committee’s work includes supporting women and girls’ equal access to science education and fostering equal opportunity and treatment for women in their careers through events and capacity building. One such event will take place on 14 February 2023 in conjunction with the International Day, the International Year of Basic Science for Sustainable Development (IYBSSD), and the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry – IUPAC’s – Global Women’s Breakfast. The hybrid webinar event will take place in Paris and online, with organizers keen to reflect on the original report’s results, follow-up activities, and outcomes, and to learn about alternative approaches to addressing the gender gap. They also have a keen eye on the need to build allies from the international science community, with both men and women encouraged to attend the event.” For more information and to register, see: https://council.science/current/blog/evaluate-reduce-gender-gap-science/
