Happening next week in Kansas City. Run by Kisaco Research. I have written about their propensity to have meetings where most of the speakers were white men previously. See
- Another white men's microbiome meeting from Kisaco #YAMMM #manel #STEMDiversity
- The White Men's Microbiome Congress #YAMMM #Manel #Boycott
People from the company claimed they were going to do better in the future. And maybe they have for some meetings. But alas not for this one. By my estimate the speakers are ~ 85% male. 15% female. Grrr. Not good. Not representative of the field. Most likely some sort of implicit or explicit bias going on.
