Lunch meetings

Lunch meetings provide an opportunity for researchers mainly at Meiji University (and students) who are currently experiencing important life events to get together during the lunch hour for discussion.
 Participants include not only female researchers, but also male researchers and students, ensuring a range of different viewpoints. These lunch meetings provide an opportunity for discussing, in a relaxed, casual environment, the issues that participants are currently facing, as well as what kind of systems they would like to see put in place in the future, etc., and for exchanging ideas about how to balance one’s work and personal life.

Past events

<Lunch meetings at Surugadai Campus>

 At the Surugadai campus where the Center for Gender Equality and Diversity and the Center for Gender Equality and Diversity, Support Office are located, lunch meetings are playing an important role for awareness-raising and proactive information provision. It is also an aim of lunch meetings to offer a place for information sharing to strengthen partnership between the Gender Center and the Center for Gender and Law.

<Lunch meetings at Ikuta Campus>

 Key missions of lunch meetings at the Ikuta Campus are to build a network among science researchers, inform activities of this support program, and listen to the voices of researchers to improve the research environment and promote gender equality, and the lunch meetings here have been contributing to the interaction among science researchers by offering a place for information sharing on the research environment, work-life balance and childcare.

<Lunch meetings at Nakano Campus>

 As the Nakano Campus does not have the operating base of this program, a lunch meeting is a valuable place for awareness-raising and information provision/sharing. In addition, lunch meetings at the Nakano Campus provide an opportunity to obtain advice and listen to requests for support measures in person, with the aim of incorporating the advice and requests into efforts to improve the research environment and promote gender equality.

Luncheon Seminars

 The luncheon seminars are held in the lunch hour, when it is relatively easy for students and researchers to attend. Meiji University researchers are invited to give a talk, in the form of a seminar, about their career, the content of their research, their life as a researcher, etc.
