RIKEN Brain Science Institute Seminar Series 2017

Current organizers: Joshua Johansen, Tomomi Shimogori, Hokto Kazama, Taro Toyoizumi, Adrian Moore
Invited speaker gender ratio: 2 Women : 5 Men (29%)
Estimated* base rate of females in the field: 24%

*Method of estimation: previously established base rate of women in neuroscience.
**This seminar series had only 3 female speakers out of over 50 speakers in years prior to 2016 (under different organizers), therefore this is an especially commendable improvement.

INCF Nodes Workshop

INCF Nodes Workshop

Speaker gender ratio: 3 women : 9 men (25%)
Estimated* base rate of females in the field: 17%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword neuroinformatics and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 29 results using our python script. This ratio from a small number of results conforms with our previously established base rate of women in computational neuroscience (17-20% at the time of writing.)
