Event description

Description

The 500 Women Scientists London Pod is hosting a Discussion Forum to help identify the issues women face in STEM subjects. We will be hearing from a range of women in science from different disciplines and at different stages in their careers about their experiences. Our aim is to identify the challenges women in science face throughout their careers to help direct our efforts within the 500 Women Scientists initiative. The audience will have the opportunity to ask the panel questions and discuss their own experiences in a supportive environment.

All are welcome to attend, whether you are woman in science, a supporter of women in science, or just want to know more about this critical issue.

Our speakers include:

Professor Viv Jones, Department of Geography, University College London

Dr. Francesca Baletto, Department of Physics, Kings College London

Dr. Angela Kedgley, Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London

Dr. Pallavi Anand, School of Environment, Earth and Ecosystem Sciences, Open University

Dr. Imogen Ptacek, Department of Imaging Sciences, Kings College London

Dr. Heather L Ford, Department of Earth Sciences, Cambridge University

Christina Shears-Ozeki, School of Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Portsmouth

The Forum will begin with a short introduction from the Co-Ordinator of the London Pod and continue with short talks from our invited speakers. We will then open the floor to questions and discussion and the opportunity for audience members to share their experiences.
