In April this year, as part of the 150 years of LMS (London Mathematical Society) celebrations the annual Women in Maths conference was extended from the usual 1 day to 4 days.
It was a brilliant opportunity to meet women at the forefront of research in their field and many members from industry as well as a large cohort of other female maths students from around the country and a few from abroad too! There was also opportunity to discuss some of the issues facing women in academia and routes for career progression.
More details on the conference and a few photos can be found here
At the University of Bath we are committed to progress towards gender equality and representation, progression and success for all, I am therefore delighted to announce that both I and Katy will be working with the Departmental Self-Assessment Team to submit an application for an Athena Swan Award
