In 2017, Hubeny was a member of a panel at the World Science Festival titled "Pondering the Imponderable: The Biggest Questions of Cosmology".[4] She was the only woman of the six panellists. The event attracted controversy when the male moderator (Jim Holt) repeatedly spoke over her, even when she was attempting to answer his questions.[5][6]
