Five rectors of Spanish universities, nine directors or presidents of prestigious research centers, two university professors and a former minister is already part of the baptized as the League of scientists male Men For Women in Science, driven by L'oréal Spain.
The initiative, presented this morning in Madrid, already exists in France and is born in our country with the goal that men may actively collaborate to ensure that the scientific environment is egalitarian and the researchers have the same opportunities for access to grants, contracts, or positions of responsibility that their colleagues.
So, the 17 members of this league have adopted a charter of commitments that sets out a series of recommendations and actions to promote the presence of women, as well as to recognize and reward excellence. A document that, as highlighted Bernat Soria, former minister of Health and director of department at the Andalusian Center for Molecular Biology of Seville, "contains concrete actions necessary" to build an egalitarian society. The current one, he added, "is a society designed by men".class="icon-foto_16_g"> The five scientific honored with Research Awards 2018 L ORÉALPREMIO FOR SCIENTIFIC FIGHT AGAINST CANCER, DIABETES AND multiple SCLEROSIS
