Please note that this Round Table is for women only.
This event will undoubtedly be a great opportunity to discuss career development with a woman who fought for her position at a time in the recent past when deserving women were not given leadership roles in academia. Other topics of discussion may include what motivates women in science, why do women choose particular career paths, and anything else you want to discuss. We hope to see many of you there!
It will be moderated by Hilde Janssens.
