I'm currently writing my Master thesis in analytical X-Ray microscopy at Technical University Berlin.
I organize I, Scientist because I realized that the public opinion often assumes that our society has reached a satisfying level of gender equality, but being a women in the natural sciences is still often seen as something “uncommon”. I want to encourage a public discourse about this contradiction in perception and help to increase the visibility of careers beyond the traditional norm. I'm is convinced that this discourse can only be productive, if it actively includes all genders and combines theoretical analysis with inspiring examples.
I never organized a conference before, but this project is very close to my heart and I'm very happy to work with a great team! It's inspiring to see how much positive feedback and support people are giving us and our ambition to make a contribution to this discourse. Thanks to all of you!
