The Museum of Zoology and CCF’s Women in Conservation Leadership Network are putting together an event for International Women’s Day on March 8th 2018, from 4pm - 7.30pm in the Whale Hall.

This event is to be a celebration of the contributions made by women to science, and will be marketed to local secondary schools and sixth form colleges as well as to students and the general public. It also provides an opportunity for Cambridge-based conservation organisations to meet, learn more and celebrate the achievements of women in science and conservation – as well as explore issues around gender and conservation. A keynote talk will be made by Professor Rebecca Kilner of the Department of Zoology.

We would like to invite you to contribute to the evening. We are looking for researchers and conservation practitioners (particularly women) who would be happy to chat to the public about their work and careers at pop-up ‘Meet the Scientists’ stalls.

We are also looking for posters designed for a non-specialist audience highlighting the work of women in science, projects about gender and conservation, and profiles of women in conservation and zoology and what they do.

If you would like to get involved, please download the contributor form and send it to Roz Wade, Learning Officer at the Museum of Zoology (rcw30@cam.ac.uk) by Wednesday 31 January 2018. Thank you!
