A few days ago, SWIP-NL, together with other researchers, sent letters of protest to the organization and speakers of the G10 of Economy and Philosophy 2017. The program presents a predominantly white male line-up. In response, the spokesman of the organization clearly states that he does not share our concern with gender equality and diversity practices – despite the petition and signatures, which began over a year ago:
“To say we need more women or we need more coloured people or whatever is not our aim and unfortunately not a priority.”
Please take this in consideration when deciding to attend this event as speaker or participant!
We wrote a response to the organizer, which can be found here. Feel free to contribute to the discussion on the page.
