MAPAS ID: 947921 ERC Research project supports #WatchOutStickyFloor #OJOSueloPegajoso campaign for the March 8th, 2022 in which we participate together with the Asociación Española de Ecología Terrestre (AEET).

In this campaign, we have launched a survey to measure an issue affecting gender equality within research teams: the sticky floor.

Less known than the “glass ceiling”, the term “sticky floor” indicates that women are often assigned less valued roles related to care or administration (organisation of scientific events, outreach activities, activities to promote women in science, etc.). These roles limit the time they could devote to tasks that are more conducive to their career advancement and career nurturing in order to reach positions of responsibility.

You can discover more about the campaign at the AEET website (in Spanish)
