GENERA: Towards Equity in Physics, Thomas Berghöfer

A European consortium, GENERA, aims to increase the presence of talented women in physics by monitoring and improving gender equity initiatives.

Thomas Berghöfer ($ the GENERA project coordinator, based at Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY),  discusses the origins of th GENERA project, its central aims to identify the issues behind the troubling trend of the declining number of women physicists at higher career levels.

GENERA undertook a best-practice study of measures supporting gender equity and supported it with an interview series with institute managements, personnel responsible for gender equity and diversity, and researchers at all career levels, to obtain both a
top-down and bottom-up view. The interviews resulted in a wealth of information on researcher mobility, and its myths. They also created a gender tool box. Full article below
