Women in Vision UK
Our network is aimed broadly at all women working in and around vision, from basic research to clinical practice, with over 200 members so far.
We hope to use the network as a dynamic and lively tool to promote contacts and disseminate information and support tools, particularly for early career researchers. One key early action was the generation of a list of female speakers, which is now available on this website for seminars and conference organisers, as a support to work towards ensuring equal gender representation. We also hope in the future to engage patient advocates, the public and our next generation of vision pioneers.
