Women Science Journalists Unite!
Woman science journalists, please join this session! We want to create a welcoming space for women from around the world to share the issues that affect us and our profession. As journalists, we are sensitive to gender issues in science. But what about our own glass ceiling and career prospects? Are we truly including female journalists and their ideas in our teams? How do we make sure women journalists are paid fairly, get challenging, visible assignments, and stay safe from harassment? Our circumstances may be vastly different, but we do face similar problems. We want to rid science journalism of its gender bias and hope the group will continue exchanging ideas and solidarity, online or offline, after the conference.
This session is aimed at women science journalists, both cis- and transgender. Men are welcome to join and listen, and we will give priority to women’s voices.
