LERU-LU gender conference 2016

The conference will take place at Lund University on October 4-5, 2016 and is a joint project from the STEM-faculties and LERU.

For many years the Faculty of Science, The Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Medicine at Lund University have worked very actively for gender equality and to promote gender issues. Several projects have been launched, talks and seminars have been organized. This has been very stimulating, but sometimes we have noticed some frustration that still so little happens – a kind of gender paradox that despite working so actively and for a long time, things change slowly.

Now it is time to open up for contacts and networks between researchers and practitioners in the field. This could be compared to how we work with educational development, where we try to create conditions for our teachers to develop research-based methods and approaches.

We also want to internationalize the work we do through our Committees for Equality and Diversity (CED) by working closely with LERU (League of European Research Universities).
The themes of the conference will be:

Engineering progress for women in science, technology and medicine. What may work and what does not? Are there working ”check-lists” to follow to create better conditions?
Best practices that work. Are there good examples we can learn from?
What is the fore-front in gender and diversity within science, technology and medicine? What is the latest in research and how can it be implemented?

The conference should be a meeting point for researchers and practitioners in the field.
