About this event

Join us for our 2018 Claudia Parsons Memorial Lecture where Dr Jessica Wade will talk about how, despite what you may hear or read, the UK is actually a pretty good place to be a woman in science.

She will share stories from “Hidden No More”, a US State Department exchange program where she joined 48 women from 48 countries to review international policies that champion women in science. As Jess also loves new materials, her lecture will also explore her work making flexible devices in the Centre for Plastic Electronics and the contributions made by women throughout history.

The series of lectures are part of the Athena SWAN initiative, a national programme that recognises the need to support the careers of women in STEM subjects.
