We are pleased to invite you to join us at this new event which will combine a platform for those in minoritized groups to showcase their research through lightning presentations, to hear from a panel debating the key issues facing minoritized groups and to network with your peers. Attendees will have the opportunity to:
Attend a panel discussion on gender equity in STEM. Conformed panellists include Professor Susanna-Assunta Sansone, Dept. of Eng Science, Dr Zhanet Zaharieva, CEO Quantum Dice and Professor Sonia Contera, Dept. of Condensed Matter Physics.
Hear lightning presentations by researchers from minority groups with a follow up networking session,
Attend a career and society exhibition to browse and make new connections,
Practice and develop networking skills.
Enjoy free refreshments as you circulate the event
GenSTEM has evolved from the successful ‘Women in STEM Networking’ event run for the past 3 years. After discussions with societies and with the MPLS EDI team we agreed that this new event would better reflect the changing objectives of societies and offer more diversity in scope for representation and audience.
This new event is for ‘women in…’ plus any other minoritized groups or societies studying and working in STEM, and men and other groups/societies are all cordially invited to attend as allies and audience.
If you would like to attend, please register.
We are also looking for people to participate in the lighting presentation sessions!
Presenters will each be given 5-minutes to talk about their research with no time for Q&A. Attendees will then have an opportunity to talk directly with presenters after the session in a designated networking area.
If you are interested in showcasing your work on this platform, please register.
