The #metoo movement has swept Hollywood, politics, and even Uber. Is science next? This live roundtable discussion will address the continuing problem of gender-based discrimination in the sciences. Our expert panel will examine the efforts being taken by scientific organizations, academic centers, and funding agencies to end gender bias in science. They will also consider the cultural changes needed in the sciences to prevent and eradicate discrimination, including moving the narrative away from blaming the victim and excusing discriminatory behavior, and toward community responsibility. Only through collective action across the scientific community can we create workplaces that are gender equitable, nondiscriminatory, and bias-free.
Registration is free and anonymous.
This webinar will last for approximately 60 minutes.
