Suffrage Science Awards- Maths and Computing
8 October 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pmFree
The Suffrage Science scheme was founded seven years ago by the Medical Research Council’s London Institute of Medical Sciences (then Clinical Sciences Centre). It celebrates and inspires women in science, creating a self-perpetuating cohort of talent that will encourage others to enter science and reach senior leadership roles. The awards themselves are heirloom items of jewellery commissioned from students of the art and design college, Central St Martins-UAL, who worked with scientists to create pieces inspired by research. The pieces also draw inspiration from the jewellery of the Suffragette movement from which the award scheme takes its name.
The scheme has three strands:
- Life Sciences (est. 2011)
- Engineering and Physical Sciences (est. 2013)
- Maths and Computing (est. 2016)
Each awardee holds the award for 2 years before they pass on their heirloom to their chosen recipient.
On the 8th October our Maths and Computing award holders will pass on their Suffrage Science award to their nominated recipient.
Alongside the awards there will be a reception and panel discussion hosted by former BBC journalist Susan Watts.
Places are limited but if you’re interested in attending please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This event is run in partnership with the British Library and the Turing Institute.
