Senior Women's Network Panel Discussion: 'I Did it My Way'    

12.15pm–2.00pm in the Ken Edwards Building, 5th Floor, SR 526

Chaired by members of the Senior Women’s Network.

The Senior Women’s Network is a newly formed network of grade 10 women, both academic professors and professional services colleagues. The group was formed in 2017 in recognition of the small numbers of women in these grades and the need for a support network.

This event is the first Senior Women’s Network event open to all staff. It will comprise four members of the Senior Women’s Network presenting their leadership journeys. We will hear from two academic colleagues Professor Zoe Radnor, Dean, School of Business and Professor Turi King, Professor of Public Engagement and two professional services colleagues Penny Jackson, Director of Operations and Brita Sread, Director of Estates. Each will speak for 15 minutes about their careers. We hope that our range of speakers will mean there is something for everyone in these overviews of their leadership journeys. These presentations will be followed by a panel discussion, where staff, students and graduates will have the opportunity to ask questions, discuss the experiences of the speakers as well as their own experiences of career progression.

The event will be followed by a networking lunch. This is a free event open to all staff, students and graduates.

 (No more tickets available - sorry.)

Inspiring Women to STEM Success 

6.15pm–8.15pm in the George Davies Centre, Room 1.34

There is a real bottleneck in career progression for women in science. This event aims to inspire female students to achieve their potential and to overcome some of the perceived barriers to women in science. Female speakers from various roles and career stages will talk about their career path, what they have achieved and what hurdles they overcame along the way. The presentations will be followed by a Q&A and networking reception including posters with profiles of women in scientific careers.

All students and staff are welcome to attend.
