María del Mar Sánchez interviewed at the SPIE 2017-Gender Equity in the Optics and Photonics Workplace


Gender ESSThe SPIE Gender Equity Task Force was formed to identify how the professional environment of the optics and photonics community can better enable equal opportunities, rewards, and recognition for its members, independent of gender.

This year, Maria del Mar was one of the 16 professionals interviewed for the 2017 edition. The survey is the largest of its kind in the optics and photonics community, receiving nearly 10,000 valid responses and representing 105 countries and a wide range of disciplines. The results of this study can be download at the following link.
