Gender and Science Meeting 2017, ETH Zürich - ML Building E12

An international meeting for all scientists and those interested in Gender and Science (Physics and Chemistry) organized by NCCR MUST and Excellence Cluster RESOLV.

Speakers from Switzerland and Europe make presentations on key issues and initiatives to counter gender imbalance in science. What does the research show about the opportunities for women and men to achieve a successful scientific career? Are their barriers to career development? How do men and women combine family life and scientific research? What does gender have to do with physics and chemistry?

Join us to discuss the rules and assumptions in scientific culture that have an impact on gender representation. Contribute to the debate on ways to ensure equal opportunities for women and men in science.
