“NSERC’s Commitment to Gender Equity: Pursuing Research Excellence”

July 29, 2016, 2:10–3:00 PM, University of Toronto, St. George Campus, Ramsay Wright Building, Room 432

NSERC is conscious of and concerned about gender equity and diversity in natural sciences and engineering research. For decades, we have been implementing initiatives to increase women and girls’ participation in these fields. These initiatives are now being complemented by additional institutional commitments and a Council-wide action plan to increase gender equity as an element of research excellence. Our current strategic plan, NSERC 2020, has as one of the five strategic goals “Building a Diversified and Competitive Research Base” which includes gender equity as a key priority.

This presentation addresses the current participation of women in science and engineering in Canada, what some of the equity issues are as NSERC understands them, and presents the initiatives and actions NSERC is committed to and undertaking to increase gender equity in science and engineering research.

Host:  Dr. Yaima Arocha Rosete & Prof. Keiko Yoshioka
