SAGE 2.0

2nd SCIENCE and GENDER EQUALITY Symposium - SAGE 2.0

Do you wonder why so few of your colleagues are female? Do all scientists with comparable skills have equal career opportunities? Why do a lot of people leave their job in science at a certain moment in their career, independent of their skills? Why is it so hard to find a good work-life-family balance? Why we do not care more about diversity and equality of chances in science?

For these and many other reasons, we are very happy to announce our second Science and Gender Equality Symposium “SAGE 2.0” funded by the DFG Collaborative Research Center 936 (SFB 936).

When? March 23, 2018, 10:00 – 19:00 h
Where? Erika-Haus, University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany
