The GRC Power Hour™

GRC has had a longstanding commitment to inclusion and addressing the challenges women and all underrepresented groups face in achieving equity in science. The Power Hour promotes conversations about the barriers to inclusivity within its 400 communities and has been incredibly popular with both men and women, reflecting growing conversations in the sciences about issues including unconscious bias, mentoring and sponsorship, strategies for addressing harassment and inappropriate behavior, and the culture change needed to support the professional growth of all scientists.

"GRCs are different from other scientific conferences because they are organized by members of the community, they emphasize new results and they are structured to provide enough time (free of distractions) to interact meaningfully."
-
"I remember my first GRC experience because it was where I really felt like I could present new and risky ideas with a warm reception."

The Gordon Research Conferences provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of frontier research in the biological, chemical, physical and engineering sciences and their interfaces.

Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are:

  • Created by scientists, for scientists
  • Forums to discuss pre-publication research at the forefront of
    your field
  • Informal communities of experts in the field
  • A great opportunity to network with your peers

Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are:

  • Organized by and for young investigators
  • A way to interact with leaders who may later serve as mentors
