Canadian museum urged to address gender gap in science hall of fame

Talk is cheap. If you have ideas on how to fix the problem perhaps you should get in touch with these folks.

In an April 14 letter and petition to Alex Benay, the museum’s CEO, 92 signatories applauded the actions of Drs. Illes and Anderson and urged the museum to “develop a robust and focused campaign” to ensure that women who have made outstanding contributions to science and engineering in Canada are nominated.

On Wednesday, Mr. Benay told The Globe and Mail he has heard the group’s concerns and the museum is still seeking creative input on how to revise its nomination process.
