Gender and Computing Panel, March 2015

What?  As a celebration of the International Women’s Day (March 8th), we are having a lunch panel at the Department of IT, on March 10th, to discuss topics related to gender and computing. This is a joint initiative of the Gender Equity Group and the Uppsala University ACM-W Student Chapter (UU ACM-W). The panel is targeted at both staff and students.

The event will consist of two parts: first, presentations of 10 minutes from each panelist on their chosen topics (detailed below); second, questions to the panelists and other interactions with the audience. Both parts are open for all interested students and staff. A short break will be taken between the first and second part, so that those who have to leave at 13:00 may do so.

Panelists, and their topics for the seminar, are:

  • Ingela Nyström (Head of Division): “Gender Balance at Work: the Case of Vi2”
  • Åsa Cajander (Gender Equity Group Coordinator): “The Gender Equity Group at the Department of Information Technology”
  • Nadia Röning (UU ACM-W Chair): “The UU ACM-W Student Chapter: Goals and Plans”
  • Joseph Scott (PhD Student): “Being a “Male Ally””

Where?  ITC room 2247

When?  Tuesday the 10th of March from 12:00 to 14:00
