OVERVIEW

An intensive workshop bringing exceptional women leaders together with early-career academics from across the globe to develop the next generation of thought leaders.

Despite decades of progress, women working in science and technology continue to face overt or unconscious bias, outdated assumptions, and exclusion from informal networks. Women in these fields make less, are promoted less frequently, win fewer grants and are more likely to leave research than similarly qualified men (“Specials: Women in Science” Nature 495, 7 March 2013).
