And my first thought was – please – please – please let this meeting have a decent gender ratio. I am so so sick of genome meetings that have gender ratio issues. Alas, then I went to their site: International Forum “Genomics, Innovation and economic growth”
11 plenary speakers. All of them men. See here.
Forum president: 1 man
Advisory Board: 5 men
Crap crap crap. What is WRONG WITH PEOPLE?
Nothing else to say really. But I will not be going I guess I can say that.
