WINGS campaign on Gender Diversity at SGM 2019

SGM 2019

Daniela Rubatto (Geology, UNIBE and GEODES president) and Kathrin Naegeli (Geography, UNIBE) moderating the discussion over lunchtime

The (almost) spontaneous campaign held by a group of female geoscientists, called WINGS (Women in Geosciences) at that time, intended to create awareness and generate discussion around the gender balance and women representation in the plenary session speakers and moderating roles at the SGM.

It included the creation of flyers (below two examples) and a lunchtime discussion around broader topics of inclusion and diversity in Geosciences.
