SMSAS Postgraduate seminar: Marina Jimenez, Ana Rojo, Ellen Dowie

Regular seminars are held by the School's postgraduate research students and post-docs. 

Abstract for the talk: Why do men get served beer while women get served wine?                   The statistics of inequality in STEM.

Are we using the most appropriate measurements when it comes to assessing gender inequality in STEM? We use national and departmental statistics, as well as practical examples to discuss this matter. Moreover we analyse the evolution of gender inequality over the past few decades. We also explore the purpose of Athena Swan and its contribution to academia.

This talk provides a snapshot of the current situation in STEM.
