As part of the 60th Anniversary celebrations, Murray Edwards is holding a ‘Women in Science’ symposium on Friday 26th September 2014. This research-based event will focus on three key areas around women in STEM subjects; female participation in STEM in schools, the Undergraduate experience of women in STEM and the value of STEM in the labour market.
This symposium will feature keynote speakers, including Professor Dame Athene Donald, Lord Browne and Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock, and panel discussions to provide a unique platform for researchers and key stakeholders to engage with the academic debate around this issue and to identify key research areas, as well as taking discussion forward on what can be done in practice. In each case, the research findings will be complemented by views from practitioners (e.g. teachers and students) on their experience and their practical approaches to how we make a difference.
