Schools outreach

The student society Women of the World would like to kick off with an outreach program at the start of next semester. The program will target young teenagers at local comprehensive schools, with an aim to encouraging them to explore subjects that are of academic interest to them, while challenging gender stereotypes and glass ceilings.

We would like to hold workshops for teenagers that would introduce them to subjects that they might not previously have considered to be fun and interesting, and especially to encourage traditionally underrepresented groups in fields such as the sciences, mathematics, engineering, informatics, technology, and law.

If any graduate students, postdocs, or staff/faculty members would be interested in participating, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Women of the World by email: .
