Is there only one way to be a scientist? How can broader life experiences impact science? What challenges exist in achieving your goals?

Join us on International Women’s Day for a celebration of the experiences and motivations that can shape a scientist’s career.

"We hope that this can be an opportunity to connect researchers from different disciplines across the College and the wider University, and explore ideas around what it means to be a scientist within the context of a person's broader life experiences."

- Dr Tiffany Harte, Dr Lauren Marshall, Dr Emily Stoakes

Brought together by College Postdoctoral Associates Dr Tiffany Harte, Dr Lauren Marshall and Dr Emily Stoakes, the expert panel will discuss their career paths, overcoming challenges, and how hobbies and family have inspired research.
