Before COVID-19 our events took place every two months at a London-based university. Meetings would normally run on Friday afternoons with a 15.00 start, 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.
Since COVID-19, we run monthly meetings; all meetings are run online and attended by CYGNA members from all over the world.
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. An overview of blogposts of nearly all our meetings is here: CYGNA: Resource collection for the summer holidays.
