Scientists of all genders from STEM fields
This conference is a response to the obvious gender imbalance in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) fields. It aims to increase awareness of structural inequalities that have led to this imbalance as well as provide support and mentorship opportunities for young scientists.
In addition to talks, the conference also includes a “speed-dating” career fair to introduce participants to a range of career options in science, industry, and alternative fields. Facilitating networking among young female scientists is also a goal of the conference.
All genders are welcome at the conference. The issues that will be discussed affect everyone working in STEM fields, in academia, and in society. Questions about biases, work/life balance, career paths, how to manage family responsibilities, and fair treatment in the work place are important to people of all genders.
Conference sessions will focus on the themes of power abuse and harassment in science, being queer in science, mental health in academia, and bias and stereotypes.
The conference is organised by the Lise Meitner Gesellschaft e.V. and Technische Universität Berlin.
