Joint Workshop – Gender Summit and FEmale Science Talents Intensive Track 2022

31 October 2022  //  online

What Does the System in Europe Lack to Promote Excellence and Gender Parity in Academia?

The aim of this workshop is to reach a consensus on practical recommendations ensuring that women can equally succeed in the early career stage. The outcome of the workshop is going to be “The Manifest of 20” reflecting the values and scientific ambitions of early career women researchers. Bringing the women leaders of today and young women leaders of tomorrow together this workshop raises the issue of setting the right perspective on excellence and sustainability.

Programme

THE MANIFEST OF 20: VALUES AND AMBITIONS OF EARLY CAREER WOMEN RESEARCHERS

This workshop segment centers the knowledge and perspectives of our 20 Intensive Track champions. Our champions are an international group of outstanding female scientists selected on the basis of their academic credentials, their potential to succeed in their chosen field and their ambitions to change the world for the better.

With professional experiences in academia, business and research, this workshop offers an opportunity for these exceptionally talented early-career researchers to outline the changes needed at research institutions to better serve current and upcoming female science talents. These changes will be captured and presented in the form of a manifesto.

 

Time & Date:

31.10.2022, 1.00 pm till 2.45 pm CET

REACHING THE CONSENSUS: THE DIALOGUE BETWEEN WOMEN LEADERS AND 20 YOUNG WOMEN SCIENTISTS

The second segment of this workshop will bring together the Intensive Track champions with decision makers on the Gender Equity and Diversity boards of European research centres and academic institutions. These decision makers will act as a sounding board for the ideas and plan of action outlined in the manifesto created earlier. This gives the Intensive Track champions a direct line of access to important policy makers such as Dr. Eva Reichwein of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation) and Dr. Susan Rehak-Nitsche, a delegate of the state parliament of Rheinland-Pfalz.

The goal of this dialogue is to reach a consensus on the feasibility of the changes and ideas outlined in the manifesto. Prof. Ruth Morgan of University College London will be moderating this workshop.

 

Time & Date:

31.10.2022, 3.00 pm till 4.30 pm CET
