The under representation of women in high level positions in scientific institutions is a long standing problem. Despite the speeches expressing the will for change, this situation is changing quite slowly. Segregative attitudes persist and do not allow for a significant improvement in the situation to the extent that it should be. Far from achieving the desired equity various studies (PNAS 2012; Gender in the global research landscape 1996-2015 Elsevier) and recurring scandals concerning the usurpation of the results of candidates whose scores are illegally revised downwards show that objective 5 of the UN report on sustainable development entitled to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls is far from being achieved. As part of CNRS's 80 th anniversary the University of Tokyo is joining forces with CNRS to co-organize this round table on a subject that has become an essential part of the academic world. These two key R&D players have committed themselves to generate momentum towards a necessary evolution. The participants in this round table will examine the mechanisms that deprive the various fields of science of a quality living force and will try by testifying to their professional experience to provide answers through concrete proposals.
