Wine and Cheese evening, 28 November 2016

It’s a new academic year and it seems winter is just around the corner. We all lead such busy lives, so it’s always a struggle to find the right time for our UCL Women get-togethers.

We will be having our regular two-monthly lunchtime events, and we have some dates for these in the academic calendar year to be announced in due course. But for starters, we have organised a wine and cheese evening on 28th November at 26 Bedford Way, from 6-8pm. There will also be soft drinks and non-dairy dips.

We appreciate that it isn’t ideal if you have young kids, and we hope that with advanced notice, you can organise childcare. But we do like to have some events for people who regularly can’t make lunchtimes. We hope having events at different times and on different days will provide the maximum opportunity for as many people as possible to meet and network with women from different academic backgrounds.

Please sign up for this free event on Eventbrite so we have an idea of numbers, and we will let you know the exact room number closer to the time.

We really hope to see you there! Please let your colleagues know, and do sign up your postdocs too.

Looking forward to seeing you,

The UCL Women Committee

UCL networking event and copper spoons at the Institute of Making!

Makes the medicine of academia go down

Fancy a bit of creativity and a chance to meet interesting UCL colleagues?

Join us for a very special get-together at UCL’s Institute of Making in Malet Place on Wednesday 20th July from 10am to 12noon.

Starting from a piece of copper pipe, you can fashion your very own shiny spoon, under the expert guidance of Olivia Clemence, and meet some of the other members of the UCL Women’s network. You don’t need to be a member of the Institute of Making to attend, but you will want to join once you’ve seen what is possible!

Please sign up on Eventbrite – it’s free but spaces are limited.

Hope to see you there!
