International Women in Engineering Day 2017

23 Jun 2017

Friday 23 June 2017 is National Women in Engineering Day (NWED) and the IOM3 Women in Materials (WIM) Group is hosting an afternoon event to mark the occasion.

This year, NWED has an international theme so we have invited a variety of women to speak on that theme, be it working internationally, collaborating on global research projects or sourcing funding from abroad.

The event will be free to attend and be held at the Institute’s HQ at 297 Euston Road, London, starting at 2pm and finishing by early evening. There will be mid-afternoon refreshment and the chance to network with other attendees as well as hear from some interesting and inspirational women

The programme includes:

  • Keynote lecture from Professor Serena Best, Professor of Materials Science at Cambridge University and current Senior Vice President of IOM3.
  • Two career profiles from successful women – one from academia and one from industry
  • A discussion on the different challenges of pursuing a career alongside family life in different countries
  • A representative from the Daphne Jackson Trust which specialises in supporting people back into scientific research careers following career breaks
  • Information on various opportunities to become more involved with IOM3
