TWIST: Towards more Women in Science and Technology

Tuesday, February 5, 2019 at 18:30 - 20:30

The TWIST organizing team is very pleased to announce that a new network called “Towards more Women In Science and Technology” (“TWIST”) to empower and inspire women in Science and Tech within the Basel area is born.  

Our goal is to challenge the current lack of leading female scientists and role models by providing a platform in which women from the main institutions in Basel (including DBSSE, UniBasel and FMI) get the chance to network, improve soft skills and create an empowering environment where everyone is encouraged to grow. We are planning to organize lectures and workshop throughout the year and we are delighted to announce our first lecture event for the 5th of February 2019 on the topic “ Women in leadership” – What it means to be a leader today. 

Prof. Dr. Sarah Springman, rector of ETH Zurich, will be our guest speaker and her talk will be followed by a panel discussion.
