‘Women in Conservation’ Conference

March 5 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

FREE

*PLEASE NOTE – This event takes place at Penryn Campus.

The conference, ‘Expanding Horizons’, will be in DDM A, followed by a drinks (and free pizza) reception in the Masters Suite on the 5th March, 4-8pm. This is a FREE event.

 

An all-female group of Exeter University students have come together to address their shared concern and passion for gender equality.

‘Women in Conservation’ was born from a discontent in the lack of diversity at the University, both in the visiting, external speakers and internal teaching. The group have therefore decided to host an annual conference showcasing some of the amazing women that have managed to overcome societal obstacles in conservation.

With help and support from the University, Anna, Caitlin, Catherine, Deb, Ella, Emily, Katie and Sarah have now founded the ‘Women in Conservation’ group and set a date for the big event: 5th March. This aligns with both British Science Week (6-15th March 2020) and International Women’s Day (8th March).

The students have put together an impressive line-up of guest speakers, all keen to share with the students their own personal journeys through a male-dominated sector; an invaluable leaning and development experience for all attendees.

Emily Stevenson, member of the committee: “There are often inequalities that we experience in our lives, with little opportunities to be proactive and do something about it. We’re grateful that the University have been so supportive and helpful, hopefully this is something that can continue every year to ensure future students can benefit from what we have started here, together”.

The conference, ‘Expanding Horizons’, will be in DDM A, followed by a drinks (and free pizza) reception in the Masters Suite on the 5th March, 4-8pm. This is a FREE event.
