Concerning the gender ratio of speakers at the 2015 Genome Science Meeting

The Genome Science 2015 meeting has announced their speaker line-up. At the time of writing, not all of the speaker positions are finalized, but currently the published agenda reveals:

  • 13 men
  • 9 women

So currently 41% of the speakers are women which is excellent. Hoping that the remaining 15 slots keep this conference free from notable gender bias.
