A closer look at unconscious bias and what RFOs can do
How research funding organisations can intervene to avoid unconscious biases in their work? A new webinar designed for RFOs will take place on Dec, 16th h. 11-12:30 CET.
The first speaker, Maxime Forest (Science Po, SUPERA Monitoring and Evaluation partner), will explain the different aspects of RFOs’ work where unconscious bias may slip in and influence ultimate effects.
The intervention of the second speaker will be of a more practical nature: Carry Hergaarden, from the Dutch Research Council (NWO), will share NWO’s experiences with the ‘inclusive assessment’ initiative. This practice is being promoted by the European Commission in its recently published “Horizon Europe Guidance on Gender Equality Plans”.
After the two presentations, there will be time for questions and answers.
This is the 4th webinar organised by SUPERA and specifically dedicated to gender equality in research funding organisations. SUPERA has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 787829.
