Achieving Gender Equity at Conferences
In 2015, an international conference on quantum chemistry drew a fierce backlash from scientists when it featured only male speakers and chairs.  About 1,700 scientists signed a petition on Change.org to change the makeup of the speakers. The result? Conference organizers added 6 female speakers to the agenda (read the coverage). This was not an isolated case. The lack of gender equity at scientific conferences persists across the board. There have been several papers written about the imbalance; there is even a website, BiasWatchNeuro, that tracks the speaker composition at neuroscience conferences. Inviting wo...
