15th GENDER SUMMIT 2018

The 15th Gender Summit will take place in London on 18–19 June 2018. The lead partner is the Science and Engineering South Consortium, a group of outstanding universities in London and in the South of the United Kingdom. Other partners include major research institutions in the UK and in Europe.

The theme of GS15 is United in Science and through Science. This theme was chosen to reflect the need to: 1) enhance the rapport between different actors and stakeholders in science endeavours (especially post-Brexit) built on shared commitment to gender equality and scientific excellence; 2) advance research for societal challenges with the required sensitivity to local needs and contexts; and 3) advance development and application of cross-disciplinary methods of sex/gender analysis, for example were basic biology, environment and socio-economic conditions interact to impact on outcomes.
