Towards gender equality in physics – what is Medical Physics getting right?

12 November 2018 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm

Towards gender equality in physics – what is Medical Physics getting right?

The Women in Physics Group and the Medical Physics Group invite you to this meeting celebrating and reviewing progress towards gender equality in Medical Physics, identifying that it is one of the few areas of physics where gender parity is being approached.

You will hear from female medical physicists in the NHS, academia and industry, before discussing what it is about medical physics that fosters greater gender equality and whether these features can be used to inform diversity strategies within other fields of physics and STEM more generally.

Register here.
