Our events take place approximately every two months at a London-based university. Meetings run on Friday afternoons with a 15.00 start and are followed by dinner to allow for more informal interaction.
Every meeting includes a mix of presentations, focusing on specifc research topics, research methods, career perspectives, publishing and research impact. We also regularly invite female scholars from other countries to broaden the network.
If you are interested in being on the mailing list and/or attending our events please contact Anne-Wil Harzing (firstname.lastname@example.org). Feel free to share this information to anyone who might be interested. We also maintain a readings and inspirations section for female academics and have a Twitter hashtag #cygna_london. A quick overview of past presentations can be found here. For a full description of our network see: Celebrating CYGNA: Supporting women in academia.
