A chance for all women and non-binary folk in the department to meet each other and to welcome the new students! Female academics in the department and in other departments are showing their support by attending this party, so you will be able to meet them too!
We will introduce CiW's aims and activities for the year, and there will be laptops out for you to sign up to our mentoring scheme if you wish!
Prof. Val Gibson will be talking to us briefly about the importance of support networks for Women in science, and about schemes such as Athena Swan and Juno project, in which she is heavily involved.
Drinks and nibbles provided!
