Virtual Conference

The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is organising the conference The impact of the COVID-19 crisis on women in science: Challenges and solutions.

COVID-19 has not affected all scientists uniformly: viruses do not discriminate; societies and systems do. There has been a clear decline in women’s preprint publications since this crisis began: women and single-parent scientists are spending disproportionately extra time on homeschooling, housework, or eldercare. The microscopic coronavirus has magnified systemic gender inequalities and conspicuous injustices.

Session topics:

  • Experiences of women in science during the COVID-19 crisis
  • Strategies for minimizing the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on women in science
  • Tools and resources for mental health during the COVID-19 crisis
  • Institutional leadership during the COVID-19 crisis
