20th meeting 20 February 2018 (Middlesex University)
organised by Anne-Wil Harzing, Sue Lewis, and Alexandra Beauregard [on behalf of CYGNA and the Middlesex University Gender & Diversity research cluster]
Through my Publish or Perish software I got in touch with Alice Eagly, probably the most famous gender researcher in the world. Her academic career has already spanned six decades and with more than a dozen publications in the last 2 years she shows no signs of slowing down. Hence we were over the moon when she agreed to visit us at Middlesex University. Unfortunately, like so many, Alice was struck down by the norovirus, so she was unable to join us. My wonderful colleagues Alexandra Beauregard stepped in at the last minute and gave an excellent seminar on her recent research on work-life balance (see below).
Networking research lunch meeting
Originally we had nearly sixty people, including gender researchers from a range of London-based universities, registered to come over for Alice's presentation, so I organised a networking lunch meeting as well. Although many of them decided not to come after we lost our star attraction, our four international visitors (Divina Alexiou, CYGNA member and my PhD student at Tilburg University, the Netherlands; CYGNA member and co-author Anne-Katrin Neyer, and her PhD students Juliane Mueller and colleague Miriam Neidig, all from Martin-Luther Universität Halle-Wittenberg, Germany) were already on their way.
As I had combined this networking meeting with our monthly Middlesex research lunch meeting we still had about thirty people attending. Unfortunately, I was too busy talking to people to take pictures, but our international visitors can be seen below enjoying the afternoon seminar.
Diversity in the work-life interface (Alexandra Beauregard)
In the afternoon Alex did a great Alice Eagly impersonation; we had over twenty academics attending the seminar. I am sure that in thirty years time she'll easily be able to attract three times that number :-)

- Be nice AND get the corner office: Negotiating your employment conditions, facilitated discussion
