"Academic sexism and ethical implications of underrepresentation of women in technology" seminar. July 7th, 2016, at Espai Francesca Bonnemaison.
This seminar aims at discussing the complex combination of individual and socio-cultural factors that undermine the sense of belonging and, therefore, the participation of women in STEM. In addition to raising awareness of the ethical implications of the underrepresentation of women in the fields of engineering and technology, we will review some strategies for reducing sexism and fostering women’s belonging in STEM. The seminar will be held in English.
