Successful Gender and Science Meeting 2017

An international meeting for all scientists and those interested in Gender and Science organized by NCCR MUST and Ruhr-Bochum's Excellence Cluster RESOLV.
Speakers from Switzerland and Europe made presentations on key issues and current initiatives to counter gender imbalance in science addressing questions such as: What does the research show about the opportunities for women and men to achieve a successful scientific career? What are the experiences in the UK, Sweden, Switzerland and Europe? 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?
