About Supporting Women in Science
Welcome to Supporting Women in Science. SWIS is a pro-active student-focused society passionate about improving opportunities for women in science, developing fundamental skills and creating a community, encouraging women to excel in STEM.
This academic year, we will hold bi-weekly discussions online (or in-person if we can - depending on COVID), with talks from academics and industry along with workshops to develop skills and a bi-weekly email highlighting opportunities to develop your CV. We will also pair up with charities to make an impact on the wider community, promoting equality.
The society focuses on creating a community and networking at the university and everyone is welcome to come along.
We look forward to meeting you all!
For more information email us at [email protected]
To be decided, online (mostly likely Zoom, Discord or Hangouts) from 6 pm-7 pm (providing availability)
Inclusive to anyone who wants to support women in science. You don't need to be a scientist or a woman to get involved! Come along to our bi-weekly meetings and share your thoughts on many different topics. You can pay membership on the YUSU website. Members will have access to our meetings as well as the opportunity to attend workshops and conferences!
