GENERA - Gender in Physics Day, Austria

Physics is a field of science with a persistently poor gender balance and pronounced underrepresentation of women at all career levels. The EU‐funded project GENERA “Gender Equality Network in the European Research Area” aims to promote gender equality in physics research organizations through implementing Gender Equality Plans.

The GENERA Gender in Physics Day strives to analyse and discuss the reasons for the prevalent gender inequalities in Physics and possible strategies to promote gender equality in Physics. We have invited leading experts on the topic of gender (in)equalities in physics to present their research findings and to engage in a discussion with the Austrian community about strategies to improve gender equality.

Among the participants of the Gender in Physics Day are Tomas Brage (Lund University & Fudan University Shanghai), Rachel Ivie (Director of the Statistical Research Center of the American Institute of Physics), Monika Ritsch‐Marte (Medical University of Innsbruck), Joachim Burgdörfer (Faculty of Physics, TUW), Ulrike Diebold (Faculty of Physics, TUW) and Rainer Blatt (Austrian Academy of Science).

Please join our discussion about how to improve gender equality in Physics in Austria. We are looking forward to your participation!

Advanced registration is required as seating is limited. Please register here until May 1st, 2017: genera@joanneum.at

If you need support with childcare facilities please inform us until May 1st, 2017.

The GENERA Gender in Physics Day is hosted by the faculty of physics at the TUW, the Austrian Science Fund and JOANNEUM RESEARCH. The participation is free of charge.
