Welcome to St George’s Athena SWAN Student Network!
If you would like to hear from inspiring women then this is the society for you! Throughout the year we will be hosting talks from women holding senior positions in science and healthcare, who will give us the inside scoop on making it to the top and will tell us what they wish they knew as a student.
Did you know that although over 70% of the NHS workforce is female, only 30% of NHS chief executive roles are held by women? Part of the problem is a lack of female role models in senior positions. We hope that St George’s Athena SWAN Student Network will help to correct that.
Our speakers may all be women, but what they have to share will be useful for anyone interested in the areas they work in. Students from all courses are more than welcome to come to events and we hope to see lots of you there. And if you need more encouragement to come, we will be providing drinks and nibbles following the talks!
If you would like to hear from a particular professional, or would like to meet a female leader in a certain field, then just drop us an email and we will do our best to encourage her to come and speak.
If you would like to be added to our email list, we won’t bombard you, but we’ll keep you up to date with future events, careers workshops and more. To sign up please send an email to email@example.com
