The newly founded Women In Maths group at the University of Bath is excited to hold its first Women in Maths Conference, free for all university members to attend. Our aim is to showcase the career opportunities for women working in mathematics and encourage networking between women at all levels of their careers. There will be two sessions: academia and industry, consisting of a series of three 20 minute talks from a range of guest speakers about their work as well as their experience of being a woman in mathematics.

Each session of talks will be followed by a panel session where there will be an opportunity to ask the guest speakers questions. Free lunch and tea and coffee will be provided. Feel free to drop in and out of the various sessions throughout the day.
