Book your place now at the INWED 2022 Flash Talks Event & Afternoon Tea Networking!

In celebration of the International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) under the theme "Inventors and Innovators", the Women in Engineering Network is hosting a Flash Talk event with both Oxford alumni and current Oxford women from across multiple engineering disciplines. This year, we will be celebrating the amazing work that women engineers in Oxford are doing. We are inviting our best and brightest, who recognize a problem, and then dare to be part of the solution. These spectacular women will be sharing their research and inspirational working stories with you in an engaging and informative way covering various engineering topics. This event will provide you with an opportunity to network with our guest speakers as well as other inspirational women who are researching and working in various engineering disciplines.

The Flash Talks will be followed by an Afternoon Tea Networking from 15:00-16:00 on the 8th Floor.
