@DionGeorgiouOne final thought on #KCBH18. Both @lottelydia & @DrAlanaGHarris pointedly made sure the first question they took during the panel discussions they chaired were from women. Result was a fairly even split in number of questions from women and men overall. All chairs should do this

@sjDCCDid you notice anything different at #idcc18? We tried to make a more inclusive environment by having all female session chairs and inviting women to ask the first question in light of this research by Carter et al https://arxiv.org/abs/1711.10985

@mcdaniellabIve started keeping track of sex ratio in seminar questions, inspired by https://arxiv.org/abs/1711.10985 . This semester we've gotten as low as 86% male, but mostly 100% male. very small sample, but not looking good

@lusseauThese work. was in a meeting this week in @aberdeenuni where those tips were enacted and for the first time, in years, we had better gender representation in questions. We were still some ways of shutting up the main offenders of question-hogging, but we had a real step change.

@kathwoolfI didn't give any/much explanation, just said I wanted to take a q from a woman and/or person of colour first. Two women spoke first. Man got offended and said I shouldn't have done it. Next time I will say at the start of the talk what I will be doing and why. That will also give women/POC the chance to think of a question. Also, a woman from the audience just wrote to me thanking me for doing it. :)
