OUR MOTIVATION

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

Cavendish Inspiring Women (CiW) aims to help raise the visibility of such successful women by putting them in front of younger women 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.
