Presentations Equity4es

Our first action was to make our own inventory, by sending a survey to the department and by presenting the results of our different working groups at the General department meeting on May 27, 2021. The presentation can be downloaded here.

We presented the current structuration of the group and our on-going actions during the department gathering event which took place at the Fabra Observatori on November 23, 2021. The presentation can be found here.


A seminar given by Marta Macho has been organized in the CP group on November 24, 2021. The record of this seminar about “Gender discrimination in Science” is available

You can find also the associated slides here (both in Spanish). Here is a couple of slides summarizing the main points of the presentation in English.
