In a groundbreaking event aligned with UNESCO’s International Day of Women and Girls in Science, Hi! PARIS Center is organizing a round table on February 9, 2024. The focus is a critical and often overlooked question: “What can men and boys in science do for women and girls in science?”

The panelists will discuss their roles and responsibilities in fostering gender equality within science, business and society at large. The aim is to bring a fresh perspective to the dialogue on gender balance, which is typically dominated by women.

Achieving true gender balance requires the active involvement of both men and women, particularly in male-dominated executive decision-making units. Our upcoming roundtable in conjunction with the international day of women and girls in science (UNESCO) aims to catalyze a change in perspective, highlighting that gender equality in science is not just a women’s issue, but a societal one. This deliberate design choice aims to provoke thought and discussion, showcasing that gender balance in science is a collective responsibility. It’s a critical reminder that gender equality in science requires active participation from both men and women, especially in leadership and decision-making roles traditionally dominated by men.

Join us on February 9 to be part of a discussion that challenges norms and promotes gender balance in science.

Moderated by Anne-Laure Sellier, Professor at HEC Paris, the round table is set to provide actionable insights and strategies to achieve a gender-balanced scientific workforce.
