GI-MS47: Women in Crystallography

  • Kamil Dziubek  (European Laboratory for Non-linear Spectroscopy, Italy)
  • Alessia Bacchi (University of Parma, Italy)
  • Date:     Tuesday, 20. August 2019
  • Time:    14:00 - 16:00
  • Venue:  BIG HS

Following a successful debut of the "Women in Crystallography" microsymposium at the ECM31 in Oviedo, it will return at the ECM32 in Vienna. With an eye to the past, we would like to commemorate pioneering women in crystallography, true heroines of their times; with an eye to the future we will discuss changes in policies and interventions required to eliminate gender stereotypes, increase sensitivity and facilitate equal treatment of any and all (in particular women and men) in all stages of scientific career. In a nutshell, while recalling the past and discussing about the present, we venture a glimpse into the future, sharing ideas on incentives to promote gender equality and equity in access to science education, particularly in developing countries.
