OPN Column January 2012 : Reflections in Diversity

On the Power of Small Initiatives, Prof Malgosia Kaczmarek, University of Southampton, January 2012


In this column piece Professor Kaczmarek writes about retaining women in science, and all scientists, and writes about the initiatives at Southampton University:

"Quite often the real difference comes from small steps. By introducing incremental changes in their policies and the support they offer to those with caring responsibilities, universities, learned societies and organizations can truly make a real difference. In addition to helping individuals, such schemes work as models that can be implemented elsewhere. Importantly, those programs do not necessarily involve large sums of money.

It is critical to focus on supporting women who already have scientific careers. This is an area where local, university-based actions can make a real difference on the front lines of academia.
