The IBMB Diversity, Inclusion and Equity (DEI) Committee, in coordination with the Equality and Diversity…
At IBMB, we believe in commemorating International Women’s Day on March 8th. We recognize the contributions of women in society and particularly in science and research and celebrate their achievements. We are engaged in promoting gender equality and diversity in our workplace. We also take this opportunity to reflect on the challenges women still face in their careers and we work towards creating a more inclusive and supportive environment for all genders.
We are delighted to announce a formative activity organized by the Diversity Committee, on Friday March 31, at 10:00 AM.
Title: Desigualdades de género y micromachismos en el ámbito laboral
Speaker: Rachel Alfonso, consultora Fundació Surt (www.surt.org)
The IBMB Diversity Committee is organizing different activities to promote diversity, equality and inclusion at our Institute. As a follow up of our activities of February 11th and March 8th to promote gender equality at the workforce and STEM, the committee organized a necessary training session for all members of the Institute, intended to identify and prevent gender inequalities and micro-masculinism in the workplace.
This training session will be led by Rachel Alfonso, consultant at Fundacio Surt (www.surt.org).
Fundacio Surt is an association for social action that works to make the economic, social and cultural rights of women effective and to eradicate all forms of discrimination on the basis of gender, with a view to achieving a society with effective gender equality.

Date: Friday, March 31, 2023, 10:00-11:30 AM
The IBMB Diversity, Inclusion and Equity (DEI) Committee organized a workshop about Gender Equality and Micromasculinisms at Work, led by Rachel Alfonso from Fundació Surt. Students, Post Doctoral fellows, Junior and Senior PIs, as well as the administrative department and the directors of the IBMB filled the Felix Serratosa room at the PCB. The IBMB community discussed strategies to identify the source of gender inequality in different professional settings and reverse its consequences. The deep interest and engagement showed by the audience caused the event to go way over its scheduled time, illustrating the need for these active initiatives and debates.
Today, Elisa Marti, IBMB director, participates in a round table with other CSIC women directors, in CID (https://www.cid.csic.es/), to exchange ideas and insights with other professionals about leadership in science (follow the event in streaming https://www.youtube.com/live/
