Held at MIT on June 13-15, 2014, to bring together stakeholders in the community for training, discussion, and finding consensus on solutions to gender inequality and sexual harassment. Generously funded by an IDEA grant from the National Association of Science Writers.
The conference includes a Friday evening reception followed by a day of sessions for training and discussion. Sunday morning will involve a workshop for interested conference attendees to aid in drafting a working solutions document for dissemination to the community. The emphasis of the conference in terms of panelists and attendees is on diversity, not just gender diversity but also ethnic diversity.
