The Meritocracy Myth: A Gender Perspective

Sala 6.2.44, Ciências ULisboa (com transmissão através de videoconferência)

Por Maria Fidalgo (LASIGE - DI/FCUL).

Although the putative advantages of meritocracy have already been refuted by several scientific studies, it is still largely adopted by many individuals and organisations, especially in industrialised countries. In fact, it has been shown that decisions based solely on merit may lead to gender discrimination.

In the fourth chapter of her book Invisible Women: Exposing data bias in a world designed for men, Perez reviews the research related to the myth of meritocracy for women at work, with a focus on STEM companies and academia. For this presentation, Maria will present the main findings of the chapter, finishing with some solutions on how to render the workplace less designed only for men.

Bio: Maria Fidalgo is a second year student at the PhD Programme in Informatics of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon. She holds a master in Data Science and a bachelor in Computer Engineering from the same university. Maria is part of the LaSIGE research lab since the bachelor, when she started investigating web vulnerability detection through Data Science, which is the focus of her doctorate thesis. Besides investigating in software security, Maria considers herself a feminist and an activist. She has cooperated with Girls in ICT events, promoted by the department, and is an active member of OutCiências since the beginning of 2021.

This meeting is a forum for scientists of all academic levels, (from master to principal investigators), to present their work and discuss, fostering new ideas and collaborations. We invite researchers from all over the world to participate and submit their work.

Conferência do Centro Interuniversitário de História das Ciências e da Tecnologia, por Céline Paillette (Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne).

Desde o início de 2020 que somos bombardeados, através da comunicação social, com informações sobre o novo coronavírus humano - SARS-CoV-2 - que provoca a síndrome respiratória aguda grave. Nunca se comunicou tanto, em tempo real, um tema científico, mas será que já vimos todas as nossas perguntas sobre este tema respondidas?

At the end of this course, participants will be able to predict the three-dimensional structure of nucleic acid and proteins from their sequence and use the acquired knowledge to improve or create new methodologies in molecular biology research and diagnostics.

The course SoilEco aims at introducing attendants to an updated state of the art of diversity of the soil biota and the functional roles played by soil organisms in key ecological processes.

Understanding plant water relations at several scales under climate change is the theme of the XV Portuguese-Spanish Water relations Symposium: “Water relations under climate change: from genes to ecosystem”.

In this course, we promote a multidisciplinary approach presenting the most recent findings on the topic and challenging the traditional way of considering symbiotic associations as exceptions and not as the rule.

The goal of this course is to provide to the participants with current and practical knowledge on urban ecology, including ecological and social aspects.

This course aims to explore ways of communicating science to non-specialized audiences, such as policy makers, industry, general public (including students and teachers), through their engagement and participation in citizen science activities.
