About this talk

This panel will be in the Portuguese Language

Scientific production has a very clear cut of gender and race. According to UNESCO, only 30% of the scientific workforce in the world is made up by women. In Brazil, between 2014 and 2015, only about 25% of research grants from the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) were awarded to blacks and browns. Is the scenario very different in the world of science journalism and science communication? What difficulties and issues do journalists and science communicators face as women, blacks, or for being part of some other minority groups? What to do to face problems that arise and how to increase diversity in these environments?
