Statement on Gender Balance at EPDIC18

The EPDIC18 Organizing Committee, which itself is composed according to the gender balance policy, fully supports and promotes gender equality in accordance to the IUCr principle.
We have built a program in which almost the 50% of the chairs of the microsymposia are women and we will enforce and ensure the gender equality among our lecturers and participants, and we will pay a special attention to the gender balance in evaluating bursary applications.
