Definition: Portmanteau for ‘male panel’, usually to refer to speaker panels at conferences entirely composed of (usually caucasian) males. Typically discussed in the context of gender disparities in academia (e.g., women being less likely to be recognised as experts by their peers and, subsequently, having fewer opportunities for career development).
