Dones en matemàtiques i ciència: De les desigualtats a les igualtats / Women in mathematics and science: From inequalities to equalities
General Information
 
This activity is part of the Women in Geometry and Topology​ workshop
 

September 26th, 2019  
 
 
Presentation 
As part of the Women in Geometry and Topology workshop, there will be two public lectures by Marta Macho (Scientific Culture Chair UPV/EHU, RSME Medal 2015, Emakunde Equality Prize 2016)  and Carme Torras (Narcís Monturiol Medal 2000) addressed to the general public (you don't need to be a mathematician to follow them you just need to be curious!). A panel (open to the public) will also be organized in order to discuss the situation of women in mathematics, the gender gap and strategies for breaking the glass-ceiling inside and outside academia. 
 
*There will be the possibility to connect streamline. If you are interested communicate your skype username BEFOREHAND to the activity's coordinator Ms. Alba Tomàs at atomas@crm.cat​​ (deadline: September 18th, 2019).
