The Women in Science Committee regularly invites internal and external scientists at different stages in their career to talk about their personal and professional experiences, work/life balance and career paths. These seminars, open to men and women, are intended to show the diversity of career paths and to provide role models to younger scientists.

The committee is always keen to receive suggestions of potential speakers. Please do email if you would like to suggest someone.
