Women in Science: MBBWinS

There’s been a lot of discussion recently about why women don’t progress into senior positions in science.

We have fantastic female researchers and PhD students in MBB and would like to support and encourage them on their career journeys we have therefore set up a network to discuss the issues of being a woman in science.

We have a monthly MBB Women in Science Cake Cafe where our postgraduates, researchers and academic staff can get together informally to talk about career paths, eat cake, and hopefully inspire each other. Everyone is welcome to join us (men too).

Being a scientist does not require a Y chromosome, a superwoman gene or the need to give up on personal life aspirations!
