Voice and Agency: Women in Science, Health and Policy
CSMB President Dr. Imogen R. Coe moderated a national prestigious panel for Canadian Science Policy Centre for International Women’s Day 2021, which took place on March 5, 2021:
The 2021 International Women’s Day is taking place during a global pandemic which has very clearly demonstrated and further entrenched the well known gender inequities that exist in society, in science, in academia, in medicine and in policy. These inequities are further amplified when viewed through an intersectional lens. As we look ahead to a time when the pandemic is behind us, what lessons can we take from our COVID19 experience when we consider building a more equitable science, health and policy in the future.
