"PerSIStence: These are a series of events bought to you by KCLSU and KCLSU societies surrounding a central theme of female empowerment, whatever that means to you. We have a central calendar of events that allows students, who would be ordinarily unaware of the really cool events society may be running, to see them all in one place. There are a range of events from panels, workshops and just chill outs with cool, inspirational women." - Salma Hussain
This event will have short informal talks from lecturers and a PhD student at KCL who are women in FoLSM. They will provide insight into their careers and what being a woman in STEM has been like for them. There will then be an opportunity for questions and discussion. Some of the themes will be the under-representation of women in the workplace, difficulties in the field of science being a woman, and the challenges of a male-dominated field. It will also be a good opportunity for those interested in a career in science and research to hear from some women who are doing that!
