This workshop will throw light on prospective careers in Optics and Photonics and encourage women who are in college/university to enter these fields. There will be female speakers from both industry and academia to talk about their fields, the career prospects, what it takes to enter, how to do well and also explain their technical role as well as their career path.
The two speakers at the meeting will be; Dr Sally Day, University College London, who will talk about her research and life as a scientist in an academic setting. Dr Rosie Cush, Oclaro Technology Limited, who will talk about her role as PIC manager in chip design and careers available in industry.
The workshop is free to attend but please register in advance.
