Title: Gender Equality and Diversity at OIST

Language: Japanese with English slides

* remote talk from OIST

The Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) is an interdisciplinary graduate university offering a 5-year PhD program in Science and Technology. OIST considers diversity and inclusion as an essential element of a world-class institution, and the culture of diversity and inclusion is imbedded in everything we do at OIST.
As a result, OIST is diverse in many ways. Faculty, researchers and students come from over 60 countries: with no departmental walls, diverse scientific perspectives are brought together resulting in many multi-disciplinary collaborations in research and education. Nevertheless, one area of diversity that needs improvement at OIST is gender balance.
Acknowledging this shortcoming, the OIST leadership established a gender equality taskforce in 2013 and developed strategies to increase gender diversity, which will be introduced in this talk.
It is hoped that the talk will be a starting point for a lively discussion on the gender equality in science and technology at research institutions.
