PSE is organizing a session on Friday April 7 on the theme: “Women and Science: going beyond gender stereotypes.”

Registrations are open !

Women are largely under-represented in scientific careers. Why is it important to attract women to these careers? How are gender stereotypes constructed and disseminated, in France and abroad? What link can be established with societal inequalities? These are all questions that will be addressed during this session, which will also include a reflection on possible solutions. The role of ’models’ in the deconstruction of these stereotypes and the influence of institutions will be discussed, with the example of the division and then the reunification of Germany.

Date : Friday, April 07 from 3:15 pm to 4:15 pm
Location : Hemicycle of the Economic, Social and Environmental Council 9, Place d’Iéna 75016 Paris and at distance
