Sweden is viewed as an egalitarian country. Still, most of the professors are Swedish and only 25% are women. Research competence is evaluated using peer review, which is regarded as an objective measure in the meritocracy system. However, this method is not free of biases. Researchers Sara Hägg and Sarah Holst will speak about the gender aspects in the peer review process of the applications for faculty positions at Karolinska Institutet.

Sandwiches will be served from 11,30 (first come, first served). Seats are limited.

Please register by May 6th: https://survey.ki.se/Survey/15348

The seminar is arranged by the Widerströmska Equal Rights Network, which comprises the equal rights representatives at the LIME, PHS, CNS, KBH, and NVS Departments
