SCGES Webinar | July 20th 2023

July 20 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Webinar: ​​Gender equality and beyond in the polar sciences

Women’s involvement in Antarctic science has grown in recent decades, with women now playing leading and influential roles in Antarctic research at all levels. Nonetheless, significant barriers to gender equality still exist. Recognizing this, as well as barriers faced by people of all historically excluded backgrounds, the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) established an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Action Group (AG) in 2021.

This webinar, organised by SCAR, will therefore provide insights into the barriers faced by women and other marginalised groups from four different perspectives within polar research. Afterwards the speakers and five more members from the SCAR EDI AG will be there for an open discussion.

The event will be held online on July 20th, 2022 at 1-3 PM CEST.
