Diamond Light Source and enei are celebrating IWD with an event looking at key issues which affect women 

About this Event


International Women’s Day is the 8th March and the theme for 2020 is #EachforEqual.

Diamond Light Source and enei are celebrating IWD on 5th March with an event looking at key issues which affect women, in particular those who work or would like to work in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).

Attendees will hear from Gill Thomas (enei), who has over 12 years’ experience in working in Diversity and Inclusion. Gill will explore what “Positive Action” means within the Equality Act and the actions we can take to help increase the number of people working in STEM from currently under-represented groups.

Following Gill there will be a session on neurodiversity lead by Lexxic, a specialist consultancy that supports organisations to create environments that empower neuro-diverse minds. Lexxic will give practical advice on working with people who are neuro-diverse, with a focus on the key differences between neuro-diverse women and men.

Finally, BBSTEM (Black British Professionals in STEM) will talk about what can be done to encourage wider participation and contribution into STEM professions.

Each session will be a mixture of lectures and interactive discussion.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided.

Who Should Attend?

Senior Roles, Head of Departments, HR Directors & Managers, Diversity & Inclusion Practitioners, Business Managers, Line Managers.
