Women in Neuroscience Panel- 24th March 2021 4-6PM GMT

This ‘Women in Neuroscience’ Panel, in celebration of Women’s History Month, is a collaboration between King’s College London Neuroscience Society and King’s College London Womxn in STEM Society, aiming to bring together some influential and inspiring women in neuroscience for an online panel discussion of their research and the challenges they have faced as women in STEM.

This event will not only address the challenges that pertain to women neuroscientists, but also aim to inspire confidence in female STEM students, early-career researchers and academics alike. We also wish to explore ways to increase the interest of young women in STEM, and how to address problems such as The Leaky Pipeline.
Most importantly, we aim to highlight to students (especially undergraduate BAME women) that is it possible to become a female neuroscientist with a fulfilling and successful career in academia and/or industry.
Join us on 24th of March 4-6PM GMT, for a lively open discussion into what it means to be a woman in Neuroscience- audience participation encouraged!
