Upcoming Events: UCL Women in Mathematical Sciences

21 March 2017: Discussion session, "Parent, carer, scientist"

All 4th year, MSc and PhD Students, Postdoctoral Fellows and Staff from the Department of Mathematics, Department of Statistical Science and CoMPLEX are warmly invited to attend the next "Women in Mathematical Sciences" event. 

Description

Following the success of the Royal Society's "Parent Carer Scientist" edition, which celebrated the diversity of work life patterns of 150 scientists across the UK, this discussion session will be an invitation to academics who want to share their experience (or listen to the experiences of others) on balancing work and family in an informal environment. The aim is to discuss different perspectives of the various challenges involved, such as mothers on maternity leave or returning back from leave, fathers on shared parental leave, people caring for a parent/partner/child with additional needs. As part of a diverse university, this will be a chance to support each other in an effort to identify and eliminate biases, as well as an opportunity to discover UCL sources of support.
