FY2017 Diversity Symposium “Maximizing Diversity in RIKEN – A perspective from unconscious bias”

View Calendar
2018-02-14 10:00 - 14:00

Since FY2016, RIKEN has been engaged in “Diversity Research Environment Initiative” with a subsidy for science and technology human resource development of MEXT. In this initiative, we aim to create an environment, in which each member respect individual self and demonstrate and maximize one’s ability beyond various differences.

Promoting diversity is important in order to realize further improvement of science and technology standards and facilitation of innovation.

In recent years, “unconscious bias” is gaining attention as one of the important factors that impedes diversity. This time we will host a symposium to enhance our awareness and deepen our understanding of this bias.

In many universities / national research and development corporations etc., diversity and gender equality have been actively promoted. We would like to take this opportunity to exchange information and views with other organizations.

After the symposium, networking lunch will be served.

We are looking forward to everyone’s participation.
