Welcome to the home of the Gender Summits. The Gender Summits are a series of interconnected action based conferences held across the globe under the theme Quality Research and Innovation through Equality.

Our aim is to make gender equality in research and innovation the norm, and to embed gender as a primary dimension of quality.The Summits were established in 2011 in Europe. We bring together scientists from all disciplines and sectors, policy makers and gender equality practioners from across the world in evidence based dialougue. Each Summit, we build on this dialougue and consensus to inform policy, at insitutional, national and international levels. Read more about our results.

We have held 7 Summits since 2011; bringing together over 2000 participants and 400 contributors from over 50 countries, representing expertise and leadership in policy, gender scholarship, science decision making and industry. For the first time this year we are holding multiple regional Gender Summits: GS5 Africa (April), GS7 Asia-Pacific (August), and GS7 Europe (November).

Join us to learn and exchange about the latest in Gender and Science and achieve sustainable positive change - pick a regional meeting from the menu.
