First joint CWM and EWM meeting

On 16 March 2021, CWM and EWM organised a meeting, open to the public, on the Gender Gap in Science Project. In the meeting, Colette Guillopé [1], Helena Mihaljević [2], Marie-Françoise Roy [3], and Susan White [4] presented various chapters from the final report of the project.

The Gender Gap in Science Project is a multidisciplinary project in which eleven organisations contributed to the analysis of the gender gap in science from three complementary perspectives:

  • The Global Survey of Scientists addresses issues related to the absence of role models, feelings of exclusion, harassment, low participation, and retention rates.
  • The Study of Publication Patterns provides insights on the proportion of women as research authors or the presence of women publishing in top scientific journals.
  • The Database of Good Practices introduces a conceptual framework to analyse good practices, in order to provide evidence of effectiveness and impact.
