Gender Equality in Science – Pathways to Success
Tuesday 10 March 2015
MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit (CBSU)
15 Chaucer Road, Cambridge, CB2 7EF
10.30am – 4pm
The meeting will include a series of talks and a panel discussion, as well as free lunch and tea with opportunities for networking.
The meeting is aimed for both men and women researchers.
It aims to raise awareness to gender equality issues and to support successful career paths for early-career researchers of both genders.
The meeting is open to everyone and is free of charge. However, registration is required as spaces are limited.
To register, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The meeting is relevant to any of you who are concerned about gender equality issues, want to know more about how our workplace environment is (hopefully) changing, discuss why gender equality is important and beneficial for the entire scientific community, or hear about some of the challenges that several leading researchers in our field and beyond have mastered throughout their career (or all of the above!).
Several speakers (both women and men) will talk about their career paths and their views about gender equality in science, as well as about the efforts that are being done to achieve that (e.g. flexible working arrangement, Athena SWAN).
