‘Promote me’ Campaign – Bridging the gender gap in science

On Sep, 28th the ‘Promote me’ campaign was launched. This campaign seeks to bridge the gender gap in Science and it has been created by Vanessa Hall, an associated professor at the University of Copenhagen.

How can you support the campaign? Watch the video and go to the website: www.promoteme.co to sign the petition. In total, 500 supporting signatures are needed to reach the first milestone. The petition is addressed to the major Danish funding bodies and asks for improved awareness of gender-biased decision making, Danish funding councils to be comprised of 50% women, greater visibility in gender distributions of grants in annual reports, and more anonymization in the grant review process.
