King's is holding the first Women in STEMM Season - a month-long celebration of women in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine. It takes place between the the UN International Day of Women and Girls in Science on 11 February and International Women’s Day on 8 March.
Through a series of inspirational talks and panel discussions with a wide variety of speakers, the season aims to celebrate women and anyone who identifies as a woman working in STEMM. We will highlight the issues faced by women in STEMM that reduce representation, including in positions of leadership and power, emphasising the importance of gender equality across the sciences and the need for an intersectional approach.
This season will bring together staff and students from across King's to share ideas for how we break down the barriers faced by women in STEMM, sparking new conversations and actions for building a culture at King’s that benefits all members of the community.
