Gender Roles and their Impact in Academia - EMBO | EMBL | HHMI Conference
13.10.2020 - 14.10.2020
Call for Papers Abgabedatum: 15.06.2020 (abgelaufen)
"Women are not rising to the higher echelons of any career in the numbers expected based on the number of women entering universities and the workforce. Debates have focused on biology and societal structures as explanations for this phenomenon." This conference wants to explore our understanding of how gender roles may be shaped by biology and by social structures. It will be asked how the progression of men and women in academic and related careers is influenced by the linkages between biology, society, and gender roles. An important part of the conference will be a focus on solutions: taking into account biology and social structures, what do all people need to enjoy equal opportunities in work generally and in academic advancement particularly? What institutional support and higher-level policies are needed to assure that “opportunity” does not mean merely “possibility”, but that those work and advancement goals can be realistically attained by those who want them?
The conference will focus on the situation in academia and related institutions, but a more extensive discussion on gender roles in work is expected.
