Mark International Women’s Day #BalanceForBetter with scientist Dr Jess Wade

Dr Jess Wade

Join polymer physicist Dr Jess Wade on Wednesday, 6 March at 1pm as the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health marks International Women’s Day #BalanceforBetter (Friday, 8 March). 

Everyone’s welcome to hear Dr Wade discuss gender balance and the importance of keeping the equality conversation going.

Whether she’s redressing Wikipedia’s under-representation of women and people of colour in STEM subjects or using social media (@jesswade) to highlight inequalities in her field, she is motivated by the simple yet powerful concept: “diverse teams do better science”.

The talk takes place on Wednesday, 6 March in Lecture Theatre B, University Place, and is followed by networking over coffee and cake in University Place foyer.

  • 1:00pm – 2:00pm: Guest speaker, Dr Jess Wade
