Speaker suggestions for International Day of Women and Girls in Science

In preparation for next year’s International Day of Women and Girls in Science, the School’s Equality and Diversity Committee would like your suggestions for an eminent female scientist to invite to speak about her work in February 2018.

As you may be aware, our event for this year with Professor Dame Linda Partridge had to be postponed due to a flight cancellation. We are hoping to reschedule Linda’s talk for autumn 2017, but will also be preparing for another event in 2018.

For this 2018 event, we would like to receive suggestions from any member of staff (women, men, academic, research, professional, etc). Please send your suggestion for a speaker along with a sentence about why you are nominating her to Nora Hanson (nnh@st-andrews.ac.uk) by 19th May.
