Today, 13th August, is Ada Lovelace Day, which celebrates the achievements of women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields. Ada Lovelace was one of the first women admitted to the Royal Astronomical Society and is regarded by many to have been the first computer programmer. To mark the occasion, we thought we’d take a look at our own “typical” experiences as women in STEM, through a series of three “day in the life” posts. I’m first up, posts from Emily and Stephanie will follow over the next few days (edited 16/10/2015: you can now read Emily’s post here and Stephanie’s post here).

The Institute for Applied Ecology will host a workshop for ECRs at the University of Canberra on 23rd September 2014. I'm helping with some of the organisation and will be chairing one of the sessions. We have a great panel of speakers lined up for formal talks and discussion sessions, focusing on strategies for career progression, granting success and science management. At the end of the workshop, we'll also be launching a new network for women in science at the University of Canberra. RSVP is essential - please see below and download the flyer for program details!
