What of women in science?

On women in science day (11th of February if you don’t know) the UK embassy in Vienna released this video of a discussion with Prof Gina Moseley and myself about women in science:

I was grateful of the chance to talk about this topic. We have many female students but representation of any minority in the upper levels of academia still lags behind. I think we will get there though and it will be for the benefit of all science and society. They did cut a comment I made about the fact that the #metoo movement is unfortunately definitely still of relevance in academia. This has to go, and strong communities, support from both male and female colleagues and institutional and legal support are all slowly nudging things in the right direction. Keep up the good fight!

The point of this is to understand how glaciated envionments might change in the future - how the glaciers will respond and what the impact on associated water resources and hazard potential will be.
