- Our parallel session “Boosting Creative Science Through Diversity and Wellbeing” will be held 14.30-16h. Prof. Tomas Brage (SE) will give an invited talk “What does gender got to do with physics“. In continuation, we will host a panel discussion on “Concrete measures for a creative and diverse workplace”. All participants will be able to ask questions about possible measures and plans to our panelists, who currently include Prof. Emilia Kilpua (UH), Prof. Tomas Brage (Lund, SE), Prof. Vesa-Pekka Lehto (UEF) and Prof. Ari Jokinen (JYU).
- The poster session will be held 16-18h. Several posters will address the topic of diversity, inclusivity and wellbeing, and we will have a chance to continue our discussion there.
We encourage all interested colleagues to download the flyer for these events and advertise at their local institutions before the event. All are welcome!
