ISMB 2016 - Equal Opportunity Session
Date: Sunday, July 10, 12:45 pm - 1:45 pm
Room: America's Seminar
ISCB understands the importance of diversity in science and promoting diversity in every way possible. This panel is the first of a possible series to come together to discuss how we as a community, discipline, and Society can promote the advancement of women in our research community. The panel will explore career challenges and give specific advice on how to overcome obstacles, highlight the initiatives taken by ISCB to promote women, and open the discussion to the audience for questions on the topic.
We recognize that diversity is more than just gender but feel it is important to tackle the issue one step at a time. Future panels will highlight other areas of diversity, including race, age, ethnicity, etc.
