Seminar 1: 'Seminar on gender policies at CBS' - Fall Seminar Series on Law, Economics and Philosophy
Seminar on gender policies at CBS
This discussion seminar is the first in the autumn series on Law, Economics and Philosophy.
Title: Should universities strive for equal outcomes or equal opportunities among researchers of different gender?
- Lynn Roseberry, Ph.D and diversity and gender consultant.
- Torsten Skov, Ph.D in cancer epidemiology and bachelor in philosophy.
Recently, Copenhagen Business School announced its goal of ensuring a share of female professors of no less than 40% in 2030. Are such goals, focused on outcomes rather than opportunities, justifiable? Are there hidden if not explicit gender biases that can justify such outcome-oriented measures? Torsten Skov will argue against such measures, while Lynn will defend them. Both will talk for 15-20 minutes. Each will then comment on the other, after which the floor will be open for debate.
If you wish to participate online, which provides limited opportunity for participating actively in the debate, please indicate so when registering.

The seminar series is hosted by CBS LAW (MPP) and jointly organized by Professor Henrik Lando, CBS Law/MPP, Professor WSR Morten Sørensen Thanning, MPP, and External Lecturer Johan Gersel, MPP.
