‘Women In Research’ Panel Discussion & Reception - Trinity College Dublin

 'Women In Research' Panel Discussion and Reception

Join us for this Women in Research panel discussion to celebrate International Women's Week, with audience contributions and questions welcome and encouraged.

The discussion will focus on the experiences of women in academia and research, including topics such as: impostor syndrome, visibility of female experts in the public, parenting while working on research contracts (maternity leave, child care, etc.).

The discussion will be followed by a reception, which will offer an opportunity to continue the conversation, mingle, and get to know other women in research in Trinity.

Panellists include:
• Professor Eileen Drew, Director of Women in Science and Engineering Research (WiSER) and National Senior Expert for the European Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) and the European Gender Equality Institute (EIGE)
• Dr Roja Fazaeli, Lecturer in Islamic Civilisations, author of Islamic Feminisms: Rights and Interpretations Across Generations in Iran, and mother
