Description

NORNDiP2019, Nordic Network for Diversity in Physics   norndip.com

While Nordic countries traditionally top World Economic Forum equality index,  job segregation exists there and it is actually quite strong. This parameter is not taken into account in the Gender Gap Index. Implicit bias is one of the factors preventing women and men alike from pursuing non-traditional carriers. The second annual NorNDIP conference is devoted to implicit bias in addition to a review of interesting physics highlights. For more info about the Conference and the Network visit our website www.norndip.com

      Neutrinos are key particles in a wide range of astrophysical sources. Neutrinos affect the stellar dynamics, drive the formation of new elements, and carry information about the physics of the most energetic events occurring in our Universe. The role of neutrinos in astrophysics and astronomy will be discussed.

      Invited Talk: Women and Physics in Sweden 20m

      Gender equality is a widely debated topic at many levels of society in Sweden. In the early 1990s, there were only few universities in Sweden, with about 2000 professors, of whom only 7 % women. Since then, a series of reforms and initiatives changed the structure of the higher education system, aiming to increase the number of universities as well as of women in permanent lecturer positions or higher ranks. Dedicated committees and special appointments based on gender are two examples of initiatives aiming to balance the unequal treatment of women over the years, even if this is widely recognized not to be the best way for the achievement of an effective gender equality. How does the picture look for women physicists today? Which are the opportunities and the future perspectives offered? In this talk, we will briefly present statistics in Sweden, trying to understand which are the measure taken to retain women in Physics, and which are the current opportunities offered to both women and men to advance their careers.
