- Quality through equality – tackling gender issues in hydrology and water sciences
19 February 2019, 9:30 – 17:00 – The Watershed, Bristol
“Science has a diversity problem.” (nature.com)
Hydrology and water sciences are no exception. While gender and diversity issues are gaining attention and progress is being made, there is still much to be done. Women are under-represented particularly in higher academic ranks, which may discourage female students and early-career researchers to pursue a career in the water sciences and water engineering.
This one-day workshop, organised by WISE CDT PhD students, will help the attendees to understand and to identify gender-related problems present in the water science community and discuss potential solution.
