New research on conference diversity and the persistence of 'manels'

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:35 pm on 29 September 2020

New research from the University of Melbourne has found that a lack of female representation persists at academic medical conferences in the US, UK, Europe, Canada and Australasia.

The study found women made up just 30 percent of speakers at conferences and a third of panels were made up of only men - commonly referred to as 'manels'.

Jesse speaks to Global Women CEO Agnes Naera for her analysis of the problem.
