Gender Equality in Science

24.01.2019 09:00 – 17:00

Gender equality is an omnipresent issue that is of particular importance in science. Women are often underrepresented in the scientific community and in particular in the academic sphere. With this workshop, we would like to present and discuss some of the issues women face in their academic paths and to give an overview of the different tools that are available to young researchers, such as special grants and mentoring programs. In addition, the workshop will offer short training sessions on relevant soft-skills, including time management, grant writing, and science communication. The day will end with a panel session during which attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions to all speakers. This workshop is meant as an opportunity to openly discuss gender equality in science, therefore we encourage both female and male researchers to register.

The workshop is divided into a morning session with testimonies and lectures, and an afternoon session with 3 soft-skills workshops and an interactive panel. A full description of the contents can be found below.

If you would like to participate, please register by filling the short questionnaire at the following link:

There is a maximum limit of 36 participants for the workshop (12 participants for each soft-skills session). The registration to the workshop is on a first-come first-served basis, but members of the CISA doctoral and postdoctoral programs will be granted priority. Doctoral students will also receive 0.4 credit for their participation, under the category “workshop”.
