Science Meets Society Roundtable - Invisible Women

Nucleus Cafeteria, Leibniz-HKI Campus, Hermann-Löns-Straße 70, 07745 Jena

We would like to invite you to our next installment of the Science Meets Society Roundtable, a place to discuss topics of ethics, equity and inclusion in science, and the role that our work plays in society.

After a wide ranging discussion at the last event that included topics of data ownership, we have decided to have a look at the role big data and biases in data collection play in our lives. We will read Invisible Women by Caroline Criado-Perez (, which explores the "gender data gap" that produces technologies and medical therapies that favor men. Come discuss with us how we as scientisits can play a role in closing this gender data gap.

The discussion will take place on:
Thursday February 16th
starting at 15:00
Nucleus Cafeteria, Leibniz-HKI Campus, Hermann-Löns-Straße 70, 07745 Jena
Cake provided, drinks available for purchase

Even if you haven't completely read the book, you are welcome to join the discussion. Members of JSMC or the Microverse who plan to attend the event may request a book by emailing Anna Komor directly. Book requests must be made by Dec 14th, so that we can (hopefully) get the books out to you before the Christmas holiday.
