Lecture Nicole van Dam June 5th 2014
The Halkes Women Faculty Network would like to invite you to her next event:
What?A keynote lecture about Women in Science by Prof. Nicole van Dam, followed by a panel discussion with Wilma de Koning, Klaas Landsman, Erik Koelink and other academics of the Science Faculty and drinks.
When?Thursday, June 5th, 16h00-17h30 (followed by drinks until 18h00)
Where? Huygens building, HG00.304
Who? All women and men academics from the RU (not just from the Science Faculty!)
The Science Faculty is an extreme case in the field of gender equality in academia; having low levels of women full professors and board members. Therefore, the faculty presents an interesting case from which we can learn more about the obstacles women face in academia. During the keynote, Prof. Nicole van Dam will share her experiences as a successful woman full professor in Science. She will also discuss difficulties and obstacles in achieving her career objectives.
A panel consisting of Wilma de Koning (Member of the Executive Board), Helle Hansen (postdoc ICIS), Erik Koelink (full professor Math), Claudia Luettke (PhDs student Donders), Klaas Landsman (full professor Math) are invited to respond to her lecture. In a plenary discussion you will then get the chance to interact with the panel and ask your burning questions on the topic of women in Science. You are also invited to exchange experiences, thoughts, and ideas during the informal drinks afterwards.
