Diversity reading group

A reading group about research on gender gap, participation of women and minorities in academia and the job market.

Diversity and gender equality are subtle issues and we need to base our understanding and actions on solid grounds. That is why we are interested in scientific research about gender gap, participation of women and minorities in academia and the job market.

We meet every month and present in turns an article or a book.
