Soapbox Science: Calling All Women* Scientists!
Tuesday, 28 February 2023
Event date and time
24 June 2023, 2 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Are you a woman* (cis or trans), queer or gender non-binary person in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine) and passionate about your science? Have you been waiting for that perfect opportunity to talk to people about your work? Do you want to receive training in science communication? If so, then Soapbox Science is for YOU!
Soapbox Science is a public outreach platform for promoting women* scientists and the science they do. The main aim of Soapbox Science is to bring your cutting edge science to the public, in an accessible, fun and non-intimidating way. We want to inspire people, young and old, to become science enthusiasts and to solidify the image of women* scientists. We know this public format can be intimidating, but we will support all our speakers and help them prepare for this event.
*Including cis or trans women, queer and gender non-binary persons and underrepresented groups including, but not limited to, black, indigenous and people of colour and people with disabilities. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have, including but not limited to: accessibility needs or concerns about discrimination acts while in the spotlight. We will work together to make sure that you can present your work comfortably and safely.
**Considering that we receive a lot of applications, we select the speakers with an effort towards creating as diverse an event as possible. In addition to the diversity of topics, career stages and languages of the speakers, we place focus on giving space to minorities who are not usually represented in public scientific platforms.
