A panel of dynamic speakers, from King’s and elsewhere, will also share their own experiences of leading inspirational change in a number of areas, and attendees will be the first to view the photographs taken at the Female Professors photo-shoot held on 24 February – the first in a series of events to capture an archive of images and stories from all 155 women professors at King’s.
