Ten Simple Rules to Achieve Conference Speaker Gender Balance

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Recently, the quantum molecular science

    world was in uproar [1,2]. The

    preliminary list of approximately 25

    speakers for the International Congress

    of Quantum Chemistry (ICQC) was

    published online, with no women speakers

    listed. One reaction to this list was to set

    up a petition to ‘‘condemn gender-biased

    discriminatory practices of which ICQC-

    2015 is the most recent example’’ [3]. This

    resulted in an apology and a new speaker

    list with six women speakers [4].
