2023, International Women’s Day – Women’s IQCC Forum

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 (50%), PhD level (38%), postdocs (24%) 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 9th of March there was the third Women’s IQCC Forum, open to the general public (registration required). The Women’s IQCC Forum provides the opportunity for an invited speaker and IQCC researchers to present their work to society.
