Open to female researchers at the University of Oxford and secondary school students

To celebrate International Women in Engineering Day 2019, we'll have a poster display in our Thom Building all week profiling some of our female students, postdocs, early career researchers and Academics.

We invite all our female* researchers and academics to join us at Keble College for afternoon tea, networking and to hear from our confirmed keynote speakers; Dr Jessica Wade, British physicist and early career researcher in the Blackett Laboratory at Imperial College London, and Professor Anne Trefethen, Pro-Vice Chancellor for Academic Resources & Information Systems, University of Oxford. 

As part of our outreach activity this year we'll aso be inviting female secondary school students to join us to learn about engineering as a career option. Students will have the opportunity to do a hands-on workshop with an engineering PhD candidate, speak directly to female engineers, join a tour of Keble College and attend the High Tea at Keble College.

Any schools who are interested in taking part should email
