In academy, it is necessary to protect and make visible groups historically discriminated against, such as women because the knowledge society requires a diverse and tolerant academic space, in accordance with social reality.

Only by promoting diversity within our collective can we generate an environment that is enriching and inclusive enough for groundbreaking ideas and innovative projects to emerge that advance our knowledge of ecology, and that provide answers to the current ecological crisis.

WISE is an international virtual event organized by Mar Sobral and Sara Varela as the equality commission of the Spanish Association of Terrestrial Ecology (AEET) with the purpose to achieve a long-term objective: to promote diversity in the academic world.

In WISE we will

… listen to world-known scientists and learn from their careers

… discuss key vulnerabilities that stop/difficult women’s careers in Ecology (invisibility, maternity or harassment,…)

identify activities and protocols to visibilize and protect women’s careers, to be implemented by different ecological societies participating (ecological societies from Britain, Portugal , Spain, Germany, Austria and Switzerland).
