JML seminarium: Female Faculty: Why care and why so few?
Välkommen till det andra seminariet i ABE-skolans interna seminarieserie om JML. Denna gång gästas vi av Pernilla Wittung-Stafshede från Chalmers.
Tid: To 2021-09-23 kl 15.30 - 17.00
Föreläsare: Pernilla Wittung-Stafshede
Sweden is one of the world’s most gender equal countries. But the fraction female professors at Swedish universities is low. Female researchers in Sweden, like in the rest of the world, still experience unconscious bias and sometimes even harassments. There are many scientific studies that demonstrate bias against women in academic settings.
In this seminar, Professor Pernilla Wittung-Stafshede from Chalmers University of Technology will bring up the most common misconceptions around gender equality and show, using scientific evidence, that those statements are wrong. She will also discuss possible solutions and a new gender equality initiative, Genie, that has been started at Chalmers.
