"Gender diversity policy: the progress, the promise, and the challenges ahead
Thursday, July 7th 2016
Symposium: 9 am-1 pm
Location: Memorial University, St. John's, NL
Education Building, Room ED-1014
Everyone attending the CSEE 2016: 'From windswept land to spindrift swirl' is welcome and encouraged to participate in SWEEET.
Our 2016 theme is "Gender diversity policy: the progress, the promise, and the challenges ahead." Continuing with the tradition of accounts of successful women in ecology and evolution, we will have a series of prominent scientists speaking about progress in developing awareness of the science of gender equity. The goal is to impart support and knowledge about achieving gender equity to scientists-in-training through the sharing of information and networking opportunities.
We have designed the symposium to include time to discuss the material in the presentations in the form of a panel discussion that will include Kathy Martin (UBC) and Jeremy Kerr (UOttawa).
Our intended audience for this workshop includes post-secondary students working towards a career in science, post-doctoral fellows, and pre-tenure level faculty. The focus will be on creating opportunities and networking for women, but people of any gender are welcome to attend any part of the symposium."
