Description

Join us on the 29th of May to hear our speakers share their journey into the Mathematical, Physical & Geological Sciences along with insights from leaders creating change with Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Higher Education.

This event will also form part of the "Celebrating Women in Mathematics" initiative taking place throughout May to honour Maryam Mirzakhani, the first woman to win the Fields Medal, and will feature a talk about the work of Karen Uhlenbeck, who recently became the first woman to win the Abel Prize. Further information on this initiative can be found at https://may12.womeninmaths.org/

Further to this, there are 20 poster spaces available for anyone who wants to drive diversity in STEM and showcase their research achievements. Please contact womenstem@ucd.ie to express your interest in a poster presentation.
