Nazlia Goharian shows that we, the IR community, are not doing that well on gender equality!


Eye opener. Johanne Trippas brought a game of cards with faces of Turing award winners: They're all male! 😮

Note to self: Nominate Sue Dumais for the next Turing award.

Tim Berners Lee is the Queen of Hearts 😉

Another note to self: Nominate Ellen Voorhees for the next Salton award.

BTW, Johanne's suggestions will be way more impactful :
1. Create a strong cycle of female leadership
2. Scholarships for women
3. Pay women if they get a paper accepted!
4. Mentoring (of everyone)
