Much has been written about women in science, the ‘glass ceiling’ and the ‘leaky pipeline’. We know that women in science face persistent challenges and increasingly institutions and professional societies are taking steps to promote the visibility of women. Gender equity continues to make headlines. Unconscious bias and a culture of exclusion have led many women to become disillusioned and ultimately leave science and academia. Professor Separovic will give a personal account of how she navigated a career in a male-dominated field, the setbacks and the rewards, and why the culture of science needs to be less challenging and more inclusive.
