Celebration of Women in Science 2019:
TU/e student Korin wrote a blog about her experience of Celebration of Women in Science 2019:
"Wednesday evening, the 13th of February. Male, but even more female voices could be heard from The Hub. Joined together to celebrate a rather unknown event called the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.
Made curious by an evening filled with a wonderful dinner, interesting and exciting speeches and a round of discussions, people came from all different places to join and celebrate one of the biggest underdogs in the work field; the woman in science.
As an actual woman in science, I wish I knew more about the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. I figured there are probably a lot of others who feel the same, which is probably why many people signed up! With an excited, yet curious mind I set out on my trip to The Hub, where a delicious meal and an interesting evening would await me." Keep reading here.
