As the world celebrated International Women’s Day this March 8th, so did we at the University of Exeter. The Women in Physics network co-hosted a social event with other STEMM network groups – the National Sciences Equality Network and Women in Climate. It was a lovely time to chat over tea and coffee and cakes and to meet other people from similar networks.
The theme of IWD this year was #balanceforbetter. We encouraged everyone to make a pledge to improve the experience of women – for example, “we will help forge a more gender-balanced world”. Here are the network’s chairs, Anna and Eve, making their pledges.
The Women in Physics group was founded in 2017 and meets regularly for social events and discussions about the experience of women in physics and STEMM subjects in academia. To join our mailing list so that you can come along for these events (with coffee and tea included), please contact Anna Laws or Eve Nebbiolo. You can also follow our events on Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/1449762338423643/ ) and Twitter (@Exeter_WiP).
