The constraints women in research face do not only reduce the opportunities available to women but also reflect the way knowledge is produced and reproduced. We seek a more pluralistic production of knowledge. Therefore, we invite you to join us in discussing the constraints faced by women in research and highlighting the valuable contributions women in research are making.
Our goal is to encourage more women to pursue a career in research by creating an open space for academic development and support for our members. We also aim to address intersectional constraints and invite all persons who are interested in participating in the society.
In addition to offering skills workshops, academic panel discussions, career opportunity events, and a mentoring program to empower, inform and inspire our members, we are also a society that wants to create a social community for young researchers at LSE to get to know each other across departments.
We are really excited about new members, so don’t hesitate to join us if this sounds like something for you! Also, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
