Our Anniversary – make it your event
It’s just eight weeks now until our 20th Anniversary celebrations on October 2nd. This will be a fantastic opportunity for women in STEM to network with others, find out how things have changed for women in the last 20 years, and have their say about the challenges that remain.
If you haven’t yet booked your place, please do so soon, as places are limited. Please register here by 18th September. The event is open to both non-members and members of CAMAWiSE. No matter what stage you have reached in your career, what your background is, or which area of STEM you work in, you will be very welcome, and will be able to take home something valuable from the meeting. We will certainly encourage and listen to your input, too.
There are many CAMAWiSE members who we never see at our events. If this sounds like you, why not take this opportunity to come along and meet us? If our events don’t appeal to you, then we’d like to know what kind of events we can organise which will entice you along – this is your chance to let us know.
As part of our anniversary celebrations, we are running a survey to find out about the issues currently affecting women working in STEM. We will report on the results of the survey at the Anniversary event. If you have a few moments, please let us know your views; the survey can be found here.
Booking for the event costs just £15 for non-members, £10 for members of CAMAWiSE and WES (Women’s Engineering Society). As well as a packed agenda, including a panel discussion with representatives of STEM employers, professional societies and research councils, there will be a hot buffet supper and time to chat with other like-minded women.
The meeting runs from 5.30 until 9.00 pm, on Thursday 2nd October, at Lucy Cavendish College. Our speakers and panellists will include:
- Dr Jan Peters (Katalytik), one of the authors of the influential SETFair report of 2002
- Prof Lesley Yellowlees (Royal Society of Chemistry)
- Gillian Arnold (British Computer Society)
- Prof Jeremy Sanders (University of Cambridge)
- Dr Anne-Marie Coriat (Medical Research Council)
- Dr Julian Huppert (MP for Cambridge)
