International Women’s Day at IQCC – Virtual Women’s IQCC Forum 2022

Tomorrow (8th of March) is International Women’s Day. The IQCC has currently a rather favourable balance in gender ratio of staff members, both at the Master level (47%), PhD level (37%), postdocs (13%) and permanent researchers staff (29%). Notably, out of the 4 most recent permanent members, 2 are men and 2 are women, reinforcing one of the goals of the IQCC of striving to have a gender-balanced permanent staff in the near future.

In order to celebrate this day, on the 10th of March there will be the second Women’s IQCC Forum, open to the general public (registration required). The Women’s IQCC Forum will provide the opportunity for an invited speaker and IQCC researchers to present their work to society.
