Addressing Gender Equality in STEM through policy, practice and collaboration

What is the STEM Gender Equality Congress (SGEC)?

SGEC is a 2 day conference hosted annually by Science Impact Ltd. As part of an international portfolio of Science Impact events hosted annually in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas, SGEC 2017 offers delegates an opportunity to hear from and interact with thought leaders in gender equality in STEM.

Attended by leading researchers, policy makers, equality staff, the private sector, academic staff, government representatives and NGOs, the congress offers a perfect opportunity to network, learn and collaborate to achieve greater gender equality in STEM.

Each year SGEC offers the best case studies, most important policy developments, and an opportunity to network with other delegates who are facing the same challenges in trying to balance gender equality in STEM around the globe.

Only the most dynamic and relevant keynotes, speakers and case studies are selected to be part of the 2 day agenda. The program is filled with thought-provoking addresses, high level panel discussions, and in-depth case studies along with informative poster sessions and exhibitions.

This year the conference was attended by members of the Athena SWAN Steering Committee and the Faculty AS Committees l-r Dr Alan Hegarty, Department of Maths & Stats, Dr Sarah Mitchell, Department of Maths & Stats, Marie Connolly, HR Manager, Organisational Change and Dr. Patrick Ryan, Department of Psychology.
