ACG Global InterGrowth (intergrowth.org), the main industry conference in the United States, is taking place on May 2-4 2018 in San Diego. How many of last year edition participants are women or men ?
It’s exciting to see the gender gap in speakers at Tech conference finally narrowing down after many years of marginal numbers of women speakers. We hope that more conferences – not those merely in the Tech sector – follow suit and are inspired by the tangible steps taken by conferences such as WebSummit, VivaTech and CES.
To estimate the overall gender gap in science, we inferred the likely gender of about 1,000,000 scientists referenced in ORCID.org and thousands of the world’s most renowned researchers mentioned in HighlyCited.com.
