Equal opportunities for everyone in every field are a fundamental basis for allowing human beings to express themselves and enhance their inner potential to take a step towards broad and open knowledge, respectful behavior and conscious management of one’s life and life of our planet.
As scientists, knowing where we are and what our next steps could be to alleviate the gender gap, but not only, in our field, can be a good opportunity to cooperate in this direction.
Join us and contribute to our journey together putting on your calendar a mark for the E&O session – Wednesday May 10th from 18:30 to 20:00. After the session we shall have a Cocktail together.

We need something more than “adding” more women in our work context, we need to change the culture and our work organization. In these years we learned many things, mainly that if we want to change something we have to really include the gender dimension in our labs, in our researches, in our management tables. When we speak of gender, we speak not only of women and for women, but for all.

Looking back while looking forward, a gender target would have seemed revolutionary in 1983. More recently, after ten years of gender and other diversity-related policies and actions, the Diversity and Inclusion Programme at CERN proposed a gender target strategy, “25 by ‘25”. Unanimously endorsed by the Senior Management in 2021, implementation is well underway and interim results are in. What is working and why? Beyond gender, let’s talk about how diversity and inclusion in STEM can be most effective when it is designed for, and with, everyone.
