24 january | 9:15-18:00 | Gender Equality in Science
Gender equality is an omnipresent issue that is of particular importance in science. Women are often underrepresented in the scientific community and in particular in the academic sphere.
With this workshop, CISA would like to present and discuss some of the issues women face in their academic paths and to give an overview of the different tools that are available to young researchers, such as special grants and mentoring programs.
In addition, the workshop will offer short training sessions on relevant soft-skills, including time management, grant writing, and science communication.
The day will end with a panel session during which attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions to all speakers. This workshop is meant as an opportunity to openly discuss gender equality in science, therefore we encourage both female and male researchers to register.
Le Service égalité participera à cette journée doctorale du centre des Sciences affectives sur la thématique de l'égalité dans le domaine des Sciences. Brigitte Mantilleri, directrice du Service égalité interviendra lors de l'introduction de la journée, ainsi que sur les bourses à l'attention des chercheuses. Olivia Och, chargée de projet du Service égalité présentera les programme de mentorat égalité.
