Launch of UCL Women
Date: 16th January 2013
Location: 2nd Floor Seminar Room, Rayne Building, 5 University Street, WC1E 6JF
UCL Women, a new networking group for academic staff in the sciences and engineering, launches on 16 January 2013. Open to staff at the post-doctoral level and above, the group will provide a regular, informal forum for getting to know other women at UCL. The aim is to provide access to information and advice that might otherwise be hard to come by, and meetings will be held at childcare-friendly times.
The launch will take place in the 2nd Floor Seminar Room of the Rayne Building on University Street from 16.30-18.30. The meeting will be chaired by Philippa Talmud (Professor of Cardiovascular Genetics). Vivienne Parry (Writer, Broadcaster, Vice-Chair of UCL Council) will moderate a panel of speakers addressing the questions “How did I get here? What am I doing?”. The panel will include Sarah-Jayne Blakemore (Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience), Mary Collins (Dean of Life Sciences), Uta Frith (Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Development), Jean McEwan (Dean of Medical Sciences), Liora Malki-Epshtein (Lecturer, UCL Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering) and Jennifer Rohn (Principal Research Associate, UCL Medicine).
This will be followed by cheese and wine and a chance to network. The launch will also provide the opportunity to gauge the time and place for regular meeting on the campus.
