Gender and Diversity Series Ep.1

Ensuring gender equality and diversity is a key societal challenge and an European Commission priority that is transversal to its policy goals and specific programmes, namely the research and innovation related ones. Research and Technology Organisations hold a major responsibility for contributing to achieve greater gender and diversity in research, but also in education, industry and across the very diverse societal actors with which it collaborates regularly.

3 webcasts or podnars, as you prefer, took place in September 2020. This is the first one and is dedicated to explore Gender and Diversity in research and technology organisations in Europe ( with Muriel Attané, Secretary General, EARTO; Tomas Brage, Lund University; Inês Lynce, President, INESC ID).

During the podcast, several documents and presentations were presented. You can find them on the website of INESC ID.

Episodes 2 and 3 in this short series are listed below and are published weekly:

2.    If you had one million euros for a R&I project promoting gender and diversity, what activities would you implement? (date of publishing: 1 October)

3.    The role of the role-models in gender and diversity in STEM research and technology (date of publishing: 8 October)
