We are very sorry, but this event is now SOLD OUT and we are not able to accommodate any extra due to room and catering capacity. Please do not email the organizers to ask if you can come anyway, as we are legally obliged not to exceed capacity because of fire safety regulations, and will be checking names on the door. Register to be put on the waitlist, and you will be contacted if a space becomes available.
Even if you cannot come to the launch event, you are very welcome to attend the regular networking events. Please watch our website or follow us on Twitter (@UCLWomen) to keep up to date.
UCL Women, a new networking group for academic staff in the sciences and engineering at University College London, launches on 16 January 2013. Open to staff at the post-doctoral level and above, the group will provide a regular, informal forum for getting to know other women at UCL. The aim is to provide access to information and advice that might otherwise be hard to come by.
The launch will take place in the 2nd Floor Seminar Room of the Rayne Building on University Street from 4.00 to 6.30 (arrival and refreshments, 4 PM; talks start promptly at 4.30 PM). The meeting will be chaired by Philippa Talmud (Professor of Cardiovascular Genetics). Vivienne Parry (Writer, Broadcaster, Vice-Chair of UCL Council) will moderate a panel of speakers addressing the questions “How did I get here? What am I doing?”. The panel will include Sarah-Jayne Blakemore (Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience), Mary Collins (Dean of Life Sciences), Uta Frith (Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Development), Jean McEwan (Dean of Medical Sciences), Liora Malki-Epshtein (Lecturer, UCL Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering) and Jennifer Rohn (Principal Research Associate, UCL Medicine). This will be followed by cheese and wine and a chance to network. The launch will also provide the opportunity to gauge the time and place for regular meeting on the campus.
