OUR MOTIVATION

The UK has many leading womxn academics, entrepreneurs, business women and womxn in industry who come from physics backgrounds. These womxn play an important role in inspiring the new generation of womxn in physics.

Cavendish Inspiring Womxn (CiW) aims to help raise the visibility of such successful womxn by putting them in front of younger womxn considering careers in physics.


Our projects include holding speaker events, networking sessions, undergraduate tutorial sessions, social events, mentoring schemes and the publication of outreach materials.
