As Women in Science at Nencki (WISaN), an initiative advocating for gender equality and promoting the interests of female scientists, we are pleased to invite you to our upcoming special event! 🤩
In collaboration with Women in Science at Yale, we are organizing an international meeting with Eileen Pollack - a major advocate for women in science, author of the New York Times Editor’s Choice novel, and one of the first women to ever graduate from Yale in physics.
The main part of the meeting will be a Zoom Webinar, starting off with an in-depth interview when you will have an opportunity to learn about our Guest’s perspectives on issues like gender equality in science and her experience in gender-based discrimination.
At the end of the meeting, we will have an international networking session, when you will be able to actively participate in a discussion and share your own story and experiences with other Academics from leading scientific institutions from Poland and abroad.
