‘Success: is it all in the mind? A panel discussion on women in science’ – Cavendish Inspiring Women
15 March 2016, 7:30 pm (drinks and nibbles from 7 pm)
Old Divinity School, St John’s College, Cambridge
The path to a career in academia is highly competitive, time consuming and often involves rejections and setbacks. How do our ambitions, attitudes and unconscious biases impact our careers in science and are women affected differently from men?
Join Cavendish Inspiring Women as they venture into the complex world of public perceptions of science, the imposter syndrome and whether women naturally ‘think’ themselves out of continuing in science. With an outstanding panel of speakers, including Dame Prof. Athene Donald, Prof. Michelle Ryan, Dr Tom Stafford, Jess Wade and Dr Stuart Higgins, expect a truly interdisciplinary discussion of the science behind the scientists, male and female.
