Women scientists during the pandemic

Τhe Centre for Gender Studies of Panteion University in collaboration with the Center for Gender Studies of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) organizes the 3rd Online Lecture of the project ProGender: A Digital Hub on Gender, the Covid-19 Crisis and its Aftermath entitled Women scientists during the pandemic”, on Monday 12 April 2021, 16:00 – 17:30 CET.

In recent years, the issue of women in science has become an important theme in the European agenda. A gender perspective could lead to new approaches to the research problems and dilemmas that have been created by the COVID-19 pandemic. From statistics it is clear that gender, race and class play an important role in COVID-19 infection and death rates. The lecture will analyze the effects on the work of women scientists in the new conditions. 

Its highly relevant to think about women and gender in scientific practices. Would more women and girls in science and more women scientists in high ranking positions in scientific institutions make a difference? How likely is it that gender perspectives will have a greater impact on challenging prevailing assumptions about what the crisis is and what the best measures to overcome it may be. 

In the lecture the Norwegian Ambassador to Greece Mr Frode Overland Andersen, will have a welcome speech

Sofia Moratti, Senior Researcher, Centre for Gender Research and Centre for Technology and Society, Department of Interdisciplinary Studies of Culture, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)

Chair of the online lecture: Maria Stratigaki, Αssociate Professor of Social Policy, Panteion University, President of the Greek Association of Academic Women (ELEGYP)
