I agree that it is important to note successes, too, Catarina. But a small correction: I noted TWO conferences with eighteen invited speakers (seventeen males--one of which speaking at both). And while I have no interest in claiming that particular sub-niches are worse than others, I feel very confident claiming that there is a serious problem with gender equality in the professions in the Netherlands; sadly the situation in academic philosophy is no better.

Sure, I'm just delineating things in a different way: rather than 'conferences in the Netherlands', 'conferences on extended cognition'.

And just to blow the publicity trumpet could I mention the Objects, Kinds and Mechanisms in Biology Workshop here at Leeds which features 3 women (Ellen Clarke, Phyllis Illari and Emma Tobin) and two men (Angelo Cei and Marcel Weber) - balanced in all kinds of ways!

Catarina Dutilh Novaes

Yes, keep them coming! :) Sounds like a very interesting conference, btw.
