by Kit Wan Chui, May 31, 2022

In collaboration with EUGAIN, we proudly present a *new live “Gender Equality in Informatics” webinar series* from June until the end of the year!

Dear colleagues,

In collaboration with EUGAIN <https://www.informatics-europe.org/social-impact/women-in-icst-research-and-education.html>, we proudly present a new live “Gender Equality in Informatics” webinar series from June until the end of the year! Full list available here: <https://www.informatics-europe.org/events/webinars.html>

Each society is constituted by individuals that are unique and diverse from each other. Diversity within any group or society is a winning factor. It implies the presence of different viewpoints and ideas that can significantly empower the group, leading to effective results.

Our new Gender Equality in Informatics webinar series aims to contribute to sharing best practices as well as relevant research about gender equality and diversity in computer science. The series is a way to strengthen both the understanding as well as the action perspective of this topic.

Informatics Europe, in collaboration with European Network for Gender Balance in Informatics (EUGAIN) <https://eugain.eu/> COST Action, invites you to join us in this free webinar series, taking place each month (except August), always from 17:00 to 18:00 (CEST/CET). Register to join now:
