2016 Gordon Research Conference on the Auditory System

2016 Gordon Research Conference: Auditory System

Organizers: Stephen G. Lomber (Chair) and Jeffrey Holt (Vice Chair)
Invited speaker gender ratio: 20 Women : 29 Men (41%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 37% 

*Method of estimation: we searched NIH RePORTER with text keywords “auditory” AND “system” and counted the number of women among unique PIs in pages 4, 15, 25 & 35 of the 37 pages of results (notably, the first two pages we counted, 4 and 35, were exactly evenly split — hooray for auditory systems research!)
