Gender Balance

NDLR Gender Balance

The New Directions in Leukaemia Research Meeting is committed to improving gender balance among its Organising and Scientific Committees and invited speakers to reflect the gender balance across our research community. Since 2014 we have run a “Women in Science” Forum, to discuss issues in gender equity and strategies to improve female participation at management levels.
