Celebrating Women and Research by Women @ DIT

Dublin Institute of Technology is hosting a “celebration of achievement” on Wednesday, March 7–the eve of International Women’s Day.

I’ve included the event poster which pictures yours truly and a host of super-inspiring women researchers from DIT.

DIT’s president, Prof. Brian Norton will launch a special edition of DIT Research News magazine, celebrating “Women in STEM” and featuring some of the dynamic research initiatives led by women scientists, engineers, and technologists in DIT.

The launch will include lightning research talks by Prof. Fiona Lyng and PhD student Ayda Esfandyari. Then Dr. Ashley O’Donoghue, Head of Staff Development, will lead a briefing and Q&A on the Athena SWAN process in DIT and explain how staff and students can get involved. A light breakfast will be provided and an opportunity for networking and celebration.

To register for the event, email Claire.Connell@dit.ie by March 5, or register online using Eventbrite. I can’t attend as I’ll be in London that day, but I hope you can make it there!
