We are co-hosting this event with Studium Generale. Tickets are only available on the Studium Generale website: https://studiumgenerale-eindhoven.nl/nl/programma/lezing/superpowers-of-mf-scientists/
Superscientists are like superheroes: competitive and performance-oriented.
Exceptionally masculine stereotypes dominate our view of what it means to be successful in science, and this is a problem for men and women alike, also at TU/e.
Where are the female professors? In the Netherlands, currently one in five professors is female, and the TU/e ranks bottom of the list with only 12.6%. Research shows that we have many biases about what a good scientist or engineer is and who fits that image. A recent study among 4000 scientists (m/f) for example reveals that exceptionally masculine stereotypes dominate our view of what it means to be successful in science; we strongly associate it with masculine (being self-interested, competitive and performance-oriented) rather than feminine traits (being a good collaborator and a nice colleague). Such occupational stereotypes are an important obstacle for women’s careers. In addition, also men are not encouraged to use their more feminine qualities.
Ruth van Veelen studies this phenomenon in Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM). She examines how men and women deal with gender bias and inequality at work and how this affects career development and choice. She will explain how highly masculine occupational stereotypes act as a self-fulfilling prophecy that maintains the underrepresentation of women in STEM-related fields.
Subsequently, together with TU/e researchers and students we will share experiences from our university and discuss what both men and women can do to induce change.
Dr. Ruth van Veelen (department of Social, Health and Organisational Psychology, Utrecht University) examines social identity development and diversity at work, particularly in academia and the technical sector.
Prof. dr. Eva Demerouti is professor in Human Performance Management and chair of the Human Performance Management research group (TU/e). She is also the TU/e’s Chief Diversity Officer.
Prof. dr. Wijnand IJsselsteijn is professor of Cognition and Affect in Human-Technology Interaction at TU/e.
This evening will be moderated by TU/e University Professor Bert Meijer.
Interesting read: “If everyone must meet this masculine norm to ‘succeed’ in academia, it is questionable whether academia really will become more diverse” (ScienceGuide)

When did you last have a great conversation?
Meet new people, gain new insights and participate in a dialogue at TU/e. This year’s theme: Facing your Future.
We often catch up with friends while having a coffee or beer, during dinner, over the phone or online. We debate the news and current affairs with friends, colleagues and family. However, we barely take the time for a balanced, in-depth conversation. So, take on the challenge: join the dialogue session at the TU/e Luna Building - Corona Hall. Everyone is welcome!
Facing your Future
What are your expectations for your future? Do you have it all mapped out or do you prefer to live by the day? Perhaps you are worried about what the future might bring, or look forward to the time that lies ahead. Whatever your experiences, this is your chance to share your views about the future with others.
