What do we do?
Firstly, we want to connect female researchers with each other. Political Scientists, Historians, Economists, Lawyers – all are welcome! We organise lunches for EUI researchers to informally meet and discuss beyond disciplinary boundaries. Stay tuned for meet-ups to come.
Topics that could be informally explored are:
- What challenges do women face when trying to publish or applying for grants?
- How can women increase their networks and opportunities for collaborations?
- How to avoid the gender pay-gap?
- What are particular challenges with regard to presenting work?
Secondly, distinguished speakers will be invited to give talks in an informal brown-bag lunch seminar format on various topics. Here the focus can be much wider, including sharing insights from their research or discussing career paths. If you are an alumni of the EUI (or if you are not!) and interested in imparting wisdom, feel free to get in touch.
