Round table “Women in Maths” with the participation of Pro-VC Prof. Karen Holford

This round table session is addressed at all the female participants but it is of course open to interested male participants as well (please contact Federica if you are interested in participating).

The aim is to discuss the problem of gender imbalance in mathematical academic positions in particular in UK departments. We will focus on the recruiting problem, in particular from the post-doc level on. This seems to be the academic level where female applicants “disappear”. The contribution to the discussion of the many overseas female participants will be very valuable in understanding if this problem is UK-specific or a general trend across Europe, and in sharing best practise for increasing female representation in maths departments.

Location: Room M/1.25
