The female voice is lacking in communication about IS

Tue 21.3.2017 8:12 am

The public presentations about ICT/IS-units are more often held by males - as they are usually majority in the field - and thus this can make the voice of females  to be missing  and thus attracting more males than females.

Rank

There are female researchers in ISS unit, though no female professor yet. ISS unit should try to promote and encourgae female to participate and present in different public events at different levels, such as deparmment level, school level, university level and society level to present the voice of female in ISS.

When a subject is marketed as 'male' it will naturally attract more male participants. This problem requires a focus on staff recruitment and training opportunities for current researchers if it is to be addressed in the long term. Perhaps a dedicated funding program within institutions for training female researchers to help then develop the skills and experience needed to hold higher academic posts might help with this.
