On Tuesday 28 February from 12:00 until 16:00 in its premises in Brussels Science Europe is organising a workshop to launch the Science Europe toolkit ‘How to Improve Gender Equality in Research: A Practical Guide for Research Funding and Research Performing Organisations’. An invitation is attached to this email.

Increased diversity leads to better research and can be a major resource for scientific excellence. All researchers should be enabled to realise their full potential, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, disabilities, ethnic origins or social background. The Science Europe Working Group on Gender and Diversity has championed providing equal opportunities since 2014 as a way of strengthening of national research organisations and scientific excellence.

The Practical Guide on ‘How to Improve Gender Equality in Research’ is structured around three crucial issues:

•             how to avoid unconscious bias in peer-review processes;
•             how to monitor gender equality; and
•             how to improve grant management practices.

It makes concrete suggestions on how to implement effective change via the recommendation of specific measures, and includes many good practice examples. For each of the three topics, presentations of the findings and recommendations of the Working Group will be followed by a panel discussion with key stakeholders, as well as by an open discussion with all workshop participants.

Please follow this link for on-line registration before 13 February: http://scieur.org/ws-gender

Places are limited and registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis. A draft programme is included in the invitation. Please feel free to forward this invitation to your networks. For any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Science Europe office (office at scienceeurope.org<mailto:office at scienceeurope.org>).

Best wishes,

Amanda Crowfoot
