I, Scientist Conference

I, Scientist Conference I, Scientist – The conference on gender, career paths and networking
(1)

With talks by successful people from academia, industry and alternative careers, I, Scientist aims to present role models, contact persons for questions regarding career paths, family, options and many more. Balancing family and a successful career is an important topic and difficulties for both women and men will be discussed. I, Scientist will give you many opportunities to get into contact with speakers, other participants, and company representatives during networking events and a career fair, and improve your skills in hands-on workshops. I, Scientist is a platform, an opportunity to exchange experiences, get advice, enlarge your network, to open your eyes and give you the tools to find your way to your very personal success and be confident in who you are! We hope to see you in Berlin!

Mission: We are young scientists from different universities and research institutes in Germany. In March 2016, we conceptualized the conference I, Scientist with the intention to raise awareness of the still persisting inequality of women’s and men’s careers due to conscious and subconscious biases. Many beliefs and stereotypes are deep-seated in our minds and influence our decisions and actions while we are not even aware of it. This results in gender-based obstacles on the path to success especially in the natural sciences and mathematics, where women are still a minority. Besides raising awareness, we strive to encourage everyone to aim for the career that fits ones interests and talents best.

Unser heutiger #StipendiatDesTages ist die Lise Meitner Society / Lise-Meitner-Gesellschaft e.V. Die jungen Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler des Vereins setzen sich für Gleichstellung und gegen Schubladendenken ein!🙂👍 Vorhang auf:

💡 – Die Lise-Meitner-Gesellschaft e.V. (LMG) ist ein von jungen Wissenschaftler*innen gegründeter Verein mit dem Ziel, den in der Gesellschaft existierenden Gender-Bias zu mindern. Dieser Bias hat seinen Ursprung u.a. darin, dass Menschen im täglichen Leben unbewusst nach Schemata suchen und andere in Kategorien einordnen. Insbesondere das (angenommene) Geschlecht spielt dabei eine große Rolle. Dies führt zu Erwartungshaltungen und Verhaltensmustern, die stark durch das gesellschaftliche Rollenverständnis geprägt und oft mit Nachteilen für bestimmte Gruppen verbunden sind. Die LMG setzt sich dafür ein, dass unsere Gesellschaft Gleichstellung lebt und Menschen ermutigt, ihre privaten und beruflichen Ziele frei von Vorurteilen und Schubladendenken zu verfolgen. Der Fokus liegt hierbei auf den noch immer stark männlich dominierten MINT-Fächern. Dazu organisiert die LMG u.a. Veranstaltungen mit inspirierenden Role Models, zum Erfahrungsaustausch und zur Diskussion zukunftspolitischer Fragen.

👉 Teilt fleißig, damit die „Lise-Meitner-Gesellschaft“ die Aufmerksamkeit bekommt, die er verdient!😍

A renaming proposal: “The Auger–Meitner effect”

The achievements of women in science are often overlooked and/or attributed to their male colleagues. Physics Today calls for a renaming proposal: "The Auger-Meitner effect" should credit Lise Meitner's contribution to what is today known as the Auger effect in atomic physics.

We are writing to propose that the Auger effect be renamed the Auger–Meitner effect to recognize Lise Meitner’s contribution to it. Meitner is better known for her work on nuclear fission, for which she was nominated for the Nobel Prize more than 30 times (reference 11. R. L. Sime, Lise Meitner:...

Bemerkungen

In memory of Prof.Dr. Pauline Gagnon's great comment: "I have never ever seen a male colleague fix a problem with his dick!"
Very cool!
Today it was reported that scientists have directly observed two neutron stars merging. Let's take a moment to remember this incredible woman and her contribution to science.
Emotions and sociopolitics... An interesting read!
Many thanks to the organizers for such a wonderful conference and many thanks to the attendents for positive feedbacks. I found Speakers, talks and discussions very inspiring. I would like to keep in touch with all of you. So please: continue on! https://www.facebook.com/Patentanwaltskanzlei/
