Abstract

Gordon Research Conferences (GRCs) are famous for fostering insight through wide-ranging discussions of cutting-edge science. In addition to the hallmark GRC scientific program, participants in the 2018 GRC on Molecular and Cellular Fungal Biology gained powerful insights into ways to better support women in science. Since 2016, GRC conference organizers have had the option of including The GRC Power HourTM discussion session focusing on the challenges that women in science face (https://www.grc.org/the-power-hour/). 2018 was the first year that the GRC on Molecular and Cellular Fungal Biology included the Power Hour and it was such a rousing success that it is sure to be continued in the future.
