Combining a family and an academic career can be a challenging task and every parent has their own way of managing this. Three panel members will tell attendees about their experience of having children while pursuing a career in science. After a brief round of introductions, they will answer all of your questions about this topic.

A representative from HR will also be present and will discuss QMUL’s current policy on taking parental leave.

The panel:
Nuria Gavara, Lecturer in Biomedical Engineering and Biomaterials
Anita Patel, Professor of Health Economics
Eleonora Oreggia, PhD student in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science

Everyone is welcome to attend – both men and women and all staff and students. Refreshments will be provided. Please book your place through Eventbrite.

The event is organised by WISE QMUL (Women in Science and Engineering at QMUL).
