Feeling isolated, bogged down in work, unconnected or just in need of a change of scene? You can’t work all of the time. If you’ve not been before, why not make May the month you decide to finally meet other amiable and inspiring colleagues at our next bring-your-own lunch meeting?
Join us on 11 May 2016 for an informal talk by Belinda Brown, a Research Fellow at the Young Foundation and Research Associate at the UCL Centre for Transport Studies. The title of her talk will be “Do Gender Equality Policies further Meritocracy?”
We’ll meet from 12.30 to 2 PM. Please come to room 305 of the hospitable Department of Psychology: 26 Bedford Way, WC1H 0AP (the same place as usual).
How to get there
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.
To carry on in our series “Who am I – what am I doing?”, our inspiring speaker is Belinda Brown. She’ll be telling us about herself, her career and some of her thinking about gender equality policies.
We look forward to seeing you there!
