The first instance of the women* physicist networking event, the physicists breakfast will take place on thursday, the 18th of January!
All women* physicists are invited to come between 9:00 and 11:30 to the ZOQ seminary room (building 90 at campus Bahrenfeld). There will be food, waffels, coffee and other drinks as well as good conversations.
Whether you are currently studying, in a phd program, postdoc or professor, come by and join us!
Who exactly is invited?
Hereby we invite all women* and FLINTA* People from the area of physics to come by.
Is there vegan and vegeterian options too?
Our waffels are vegan, and we also have vegan toppings for sandwiches, so you can decide yourself what you want to eat. All the food is vegetarian.
Does it cost something?
No. The student council is funded by the AStA and the Association of Friends and Supporters of Physics (Verein der Freunde und Förderer der Physik – VFFP) financially supports the event.
Why do we do this?
FLINTA* people are underrepresented in Physics, abandon their studies more often and face gender based discrimination in their studies and workplace. Networking fosters collaboration, allows to meet role models and shows the range possibilities in physics.
What does FLINTA* mean?
FLINTA* is a German acronym for women, lesbians, inter, non binary, trans and agender inividuals and is used to indicate people who are patriarchally discriminated against based on their gender identity.
