WISE@QMUL IWD 2021 virtual conference
When: March 25 2021
Where: London, United Kingdom
We at WISE@QMUL are excited to announce that we are hosting a free two-day online conference to celebrate International Women’s Day 2021. On 25th-26th March 2021 we will be joined by many inspiring speakers to discuss two main themes:
- Ethnic minority women in STEMM.
- Future directions and priorities for women in STEMM.
This is a unique opportunity to celebrate women in the field of science and engineering who have had remarkable journeys and broken glass ceilings, whilst encouraging young female scientists to pursue careers in STEMM.
The theme of the International Women’s Day 2021 Conference is #ChooseToChallenge and WISE@QMUL is choosing to challenge the unequal representation of women and ethnic minority women in STEMM. Our conference aims to bring people together to address this unequal representation and discuss practical solutions to combat it.
Our expert speakers will share their brilliant work and career experiences with the next generation of women in STEMM at QMUL and beyond.
The conference will be a prime opportunity to provide the audience with examples of STEMM careers and views on the future of women in STEMM and the experiences of ethnic minority women in STEMM.
With QMUL ranking first place for equality and diversity this year, we hope to build on the work already done by staff and students here and contribute towards being “the most inclusive university of its kind, anywhere”.
