International Day of Women and Girls in Science

On this occasion the Equal Opportunities Office at Heidelberg University has invited established and junior female scientists at Heidelberg University to discuss why “women in science” have and need their own day, whether they still need it, and what they need beyond that to thrive as scientists. The discussion will focus on the opportunities, obstacles and wishes of women in science, and the participating scientists will report on their career paths, their experiences and observations.

Participants on the panel are
Dr. Lisa Baumann (Biology)
Professor Jadranka Gvozdanovic (Slavic studies and former equal opportunities officer of UHD)
Professor Inken Prohl (Religious Studies)
Professor Kathia Serrano-Velarde (Sociology)
Professor Sabine Strahl (Biology)
Dr. Sanam Vardag (Physics, Heidelberg Center for the Environment)

The panel will be moderated by Professor Christiane Schwieren, Equal Opportunities Officer of the University (Economics).

At the end of the one-hour panel, especially younger female scientists and those interested in an academic career will have the opportunity to talk to more senior researchers in their field in breakout rooms. Information on these breakout-sessions will be available directly on Thursday evening.

Time: February 11th, 2021, 18:00 (s.t.!)
