The #metoo movement spread on social media as a hashtag to help demonstrate the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment in the workplace. As a result, it encouraged women to reveal the extent of problems. It has swept the entertainment industry, politics, and even Uber. Is science next? This live roundtable discussion will address the continuing problem of gender-based discrimination in science.
Our experts panel will examine the efforts being taken by scientific organizations, academic centers, and funding agencies to end gender bias in science. They will also consider the cultural changes needed in science to prevent and eradicate discrimination, including moving the narrative away from blaming the victim and excusing discriminatory behavior, and will highlight the responsibility of society. Through collective actions within the scientific community we wish to create gender equitable, nondiscriminatory and bias-free workplaces.
