Save the dates – our upcoming BYO lunches for the coming academic year

We just wanted to let you know when our upcoming lunchtime sessions would be, so you can make a plan to attend one, or a few, or all!

We will either have a speaker, or just have lunch and a chat – details closer to the time.

Friday Nov 4 1-2.30
Friday Dec 16 1-2.30
Tues Feb 14 1-2.30
Thurs April 13 1-2.30
Wed June 14 1-2.30

All are held in room 305 of the hospitable Department of Psychology: 26 Bedford Way, WC1H 0AP (the same place as usual). Go to the seminar room on the 3rd floor. You can buy drinks and sandwiches at the Café next door to the seminar room, or bring your own! Step-free access is available immediately to the right of the main entrance.

Please don’t be shy: we’d love to meet you.


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
