Announcement for CUWiP2022 in Glasgow

GWIP

We are excited to announce that our bid to host the Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) at Glasgow University has been successful, which means that the School of Physics and Astronomy will host CUWiP in 2022. The School’s Athena Swan committee joined forces with Glasgow Women in Physics, colleagues at the Physics department at Strathclyde, and with support from other partners to put together the winning bid for this conference which runs under the auspice of the Institute of Physics.

CUWiP encourages female undergraduates to continue in physics by focusing on their development as a scientist and showcasing options for their educational and professional futures. The 3-day conference program usually includes presentations by distinguished women physicists on their cutting-edge research, personal career paths by inspirational women in academia, industry and the third sector and tours of laboratories or local sites of interest. Additionally, there will be expert panels to answer questions on graduate study and career opportunities outside of academia, workshops on effective assertiveness, imposter syndrome and microaggression as well as plenty of networking opportunities.
