The Way Forward: Recognizing Women’s Contributions to Science



11:00 AM-12:00 PM

The Quantitative Biosciences Institute (QBI) at UCSF is presenting a live QBI TV panel discussion titled, “The Way Forward: Recognizing Women’s Contributions to Science”, to highlight the need to increase the inclusion and acknowledgment of women in science. 

The goal of this panel will be to discuss the systematic efforts to increase participation of women in science and the gains that result from better parity of men and women in the field. The conversation will also aim to shine a light on what can be done moving forward to acknowledge women’s contributions to science and ultimately create a more equitable system of success.
