Hi WISE members,
A belated new year to you and I hope the start of the academic year is going well for you. You’re probably knee-deep in experiments and paper writing by now…I hope the holidays aren’t too distant a memory!
What has the WISE committee been up to?
Joanne has taken over from Nela as Chair of WISE@QMUL. We’re sorry to see Nela go as a really dynamic and excellent leader of WISE. She’s taking a break to start writing up her thesis. Thank you Nela for all your hard work!
We had a committee social at the lovely Ariana restaurant in Mile End, and caught up with our holiday news. We’ve also been planning the spring events. The first of which is on the 28th February at lunchtime, and will tackle the evidence for employment bias against women in science. We hope you can come along; please save the date.
Finally we’re looking for committee members to replace friends that will be leaving. Anyone is welcome, from undergrads to lecturers at QMUL. It doesn’t need to be a big time commitment. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or use our contact form for more info.
See you soon!
