Title of presentation: Gender Equality in Science – Problems and how to cope with them
Elizabeth Poschl 14Sept2017

Not only do we have few women in STEM, but how visible are they in the scientific community? Do female scientists receive as many scientific awards and honours as men? Are they as successful at grant applications as their male colleagues? We will have an overview about problems women face in science and will discuss how we can cope with them.
