For women in academia, unconscious gender bias can affect career progression opportunities and even how well manuscripts are received. In this indispensable and free webinar, Joanne Kamens, Executive Director at Addgene, Nicole Neuman, Senior Editor of Cell Press’ Trends in Biochemical Sciences, and Kate Hibbert, Publisher of geochemistry and planetary science journals at Elsevier, will discuss how you can learn to recognize gender bias and avoid it.
Hear all about what publishers like Elsevier are doing to reduce the effect of unconscious gender bias in order to make the publishing process fairer and more equitable for all. In the course of this webinar, you’ll have the opportunity to ask the speakers questions. Following the webinar, the speakers will host a Mendeley group where you can take the discussion deeper and further.
