Cristin Beumer appointed as member of the MFM's 'Gleichstellungskommission'
Since 2017, Cristin strongly supports the equal opportunities work of the CRU. As a woman in the field of medical research and a mother of a young child, she has the ideal prerequisites to make a change. Her very own goals? 'In order to promote the career opportunities of women in science, it is important to provide framework conditions that above all support the scientific profiling of women. My personal aim is to fight the leaky pipeline* (data) which is bad for all of us – both women and men.'
All the best for her future work!
*The term 'leaky pipeline' is used to describe the declining proportion of women in science at the various qualification and career levels, which indicates a persistent structural inequality between men and women.
