Falling Walls Circle Table: Forging a more inclusive research ecosystem with key stakeholders

Over the past two decades, the scientific community has made good strides in advancing women in science and to some degree, embedding sex and gender in research. But gender is only one aspect of a larger debate around inclusion and diversity. Inequalities based on race and ethnicity have been very much in the news over the past year.

6 November, 16.00 – 17.00 CET

This panel will build on the November 5th Falling Walls discussion “Combating systemic racism in science to bring together key players across the scientific community: funders, research institutions, associations and publishers. The panel will seek to address the burning question posed by the first panel: how can we work together to create a more inclusive research ecosystem using its nuts and bolts – such as funding, publishing, peer review, evaluation, conferences and, of course, the research itself.

Falling Walls Circle Tables will give the spotlight to world-leading scientists, science strategists and policy-makers from academia, business and politics discuss how we can apply science, research and innovation to get the world moving again.

This is a digital event. Shortly before the event starts, the stream will be made available on the Falling Walls site. Add the event to your schedule and receive a reminder.
