OpenTalk STEM

Succeeding in STEM

This event took place on 6th November 2019 at 6:00pm (18:00 GMT)
Berrill Lecture Theatre, The Open University, Walton Hall Campus, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

Come and hear a lively panel discussion featuring three women from the Open University’s STEM Faculty who have recently been promoted to professor. With Professor Josie Fraser in the chair, our panellists, Sally Jordan, Clem Herman and Carol Morris, will talk about their unique and somewhat unconventional career paths. They will discuss all things women and STEM, including top tips for success, how to overcome stereotype threat and imposter syndrome, and their vision of the future for women and STEM at the OU. Our trio of professors will begin by telling their own stories, illustrating how the personal is indeed still political, and how the right support mechanisms can enable women to succeed against the odds.
