Welcome to the homepage of the EPSA Women's Caucus
The EPSA Women’s Caucus was founded on 6 October 2011 at the 3rd biennial conference of the EPSA in Athens, Greece. Its goals are to promote networking, research collaboration, and informal peer mentoring among women and other under-represented groups in philosophy of science, as well as to make the presence of women and other under-represented groups in the field more visible.
The business of the Caucus is decided at the biennial meeting by the members present and voting. Between meetings, the Caucus is guided by the two co-chairs. Co-chairs serve four-year terms. At every meeting of the Women's Caucus the terms of one of the co-chairs comes to an end a new co-chair begins their term. The business of the Caucus includes, but is not limited to: bringing together philosophers to identify and discuss gender issues; supporting initiatives that foster the visibility of women in the profession; providing information and resources to women and other under-represented groups in philosophy; organizing the keynote lecture for the biennial conference; publishing interviews with prominent women in the profession; and collecting data on working conditions in different countries.
Women's Caucus Election 2021
After four years in office, Lena Kästner's term as Junior Co-chair of the Women's Caucus is sadly coming to an end. It's safe to say we have got a massive amount of important work done due to her, and it's been wonderful working with her the last two years. We are very happy and grateful that the brilliant Azita Chellappoo has agreed to run to take over as Junior Co-Chair. To make this official, we first need to conduct an affirmative vote.
