What’s On

In celebration of International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2020, we have partnered up with MatSoc (the Materials society) to host a panel event titled ‘ElectrifyingWomen: The past and present of women in STEM’.

The event will take the form of a talk given by members of the organisation ‘ElectrifyingWomen’ (from University of Leeds and Science Museum), on the extensive history of the contributions of women to STEM disciplines, that will lead into an informal panel discussion involving guests from a range of different STEM backgrounds who are leaders in their respective fields. Our panellists include:

  • Dr Jess Wade (Imperial College department of Physics – PDRA and diversity in STEM advocate)
  • Dr Elizabeth Bruton (Science Museum – Curator of Technology and Engineering)
  • Dr Patricia Forcén (Zotefoams plc – Senior Technologist)
  • Katharine Grant (Occupational Therapist for NHS Scotland)
  • Dr Emily Rees (Electrifying Women and University of Leeds)

We are very excited to welcoming you all this Tuesday (11/02/2020) from 18:30 in City and Guilds Building LT 664, for an immersive evening on the history of women in STEM followed by networking over drinks, canapés and pastries!.

Welcome to the WomenInSTEM@Imperial blog!

We thought about having a new platform that, alongside our email newsletter (subscribe here!), would help us share a bit more about what we have been up to and what we do as a society. We want to highlight our past events, share our next and even some events across college that feature Women in STEM.
The blog will be a place where we can share summaries of our events or of others we may attend, in case you did not had a chance to. A place where we can share some of the work our members are involved in, such as outreach activities, and which help shine a brighter light into STEM. We hope the blog will also feature interviews or short-stories of women in STEM we hope will inspire you!!
Most importantly, we would love to hear from you and the content you would like to see here.
