Description

Free Public Lecture - Advancing the Role and Recognition of Women in Science

Women have made significant contributions to science from the earliest times. However, they have not always been given the same recognition as their male counterparts, and still face many subtle barriers during their career. In this talk, Maren will discuss some of the reasons why contributions by women have often been overlooked and showcase how we can help to show young female scientists that it can be done, and that things are changing for the better. An afternoon tea will be held on conclusion of the talk, with all event attendees invited.

Speaker: Dr Maren Wellenreuther, Associate Professor at Lund University in Sweden and Senior Scientist at Plant and Food Research in New Zealand.
