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 practitioners from across the world in evidence based dialogue. Each Summit, we build on this dialogue and consensus to inform policy and action, at institutional, 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. From our beginnings in Europe, the Gender Summit mission has been taken on in new global regions: North America, Africa and Asia-Pacific. 2016 sees the further expansion to Latin America with the GS8 North & Latin America 2016 in April. This year we will also be holding another European edition of the event, GS9 Eu in Brussels in November.
