Gender and Science Meet in 2021

External Event - 9th Feb 2021

Time - 2.30 - 4.30 pm CET

On the occasion of the Gender and Science Meet 2021, the Alba Network and the Heidelberg Pain Consortium are partnering to organise an online mentoring workshop.

In the recent times, there has been increasing awareness to enhance the gender equality in leadership in science. Several actions are based on a distorted bias of the conventional male leader’s approach being assertive, goal and task-oriented, which is displayed as being superior to `soft´ feminine traits: insightful, empathetic, integrative and relationship-oriented. For a long time, women have been given the impression that they have to develop typically ‘male’ characteristics to reach higher positions, leading to inner turmoil and insecurity regarding ‘Do I have to act like a man to succeed in science?’.

In this panel discussion between leading female scientists and young investigators, we would like to tackle how a diversity of behavioural, social and leadership attributes and attitudes can best be harnessed to create a professionally-balanced and successful environment, with a perspective to foster gender equality in science leadership.

During this session, each panelist will talk about their experience regarding the topic. This will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.

Scientists at all stages are welcome and young scientists are encouraged to join this meeting.
