Editorial Newsletter 1/2018

Dear colleagues,

This issue brings you a selection of must-read articles about some of the activities of the National Contact Centre for Gender in Science in the past six months.

First of all, we are bringing you a roundup of year one of the Horizon 2020 GENDERACTION project. We are also proud to announce that we completed the Operational Programme “Employment” survey. We are currently working on processing the results and here we present the first findings from the representative questionnaire survey.

In spring 2018 we published an e-book Gender and Neoliberalism in Czech Academia edited by Marta Vohlídalová and Marcela Linková. The book analyses the consequences of the neoliberal-informed reforms for gender equality in Czech academia and summarizes our research into the various aspects of gender inequality in research.

Last but not least, on 30 October 2018 the Centre for Gender and Science is organizing the 5th National Conference on Gender and Science, this time titled Science As a Vocation. We are proud to have Angela Saini, British science journalist and author of a popular book Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong, as our keynote speaker.

On behalf of the Centre we wish you inspiring reading and enjoy your summer!

Naďa Straková and Marcela Linková
