When so many female scientists have changed our understanding of the world and yet around half the UK population struggles to name a woman in science, questions need to be asked! What attracts women to science, what are their experiences and why are they not more visible? Join us for a fascinating discussion with current and former Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) Presidents, Prof Dame Anne Glover and Prof Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell and RSE Young Academy of Scotland member Dr Silvia Paracchini as they discuss their personal experiences of being women in science.
Presented by The Royal Society of Edinburgh
