Women in Photonics

A new important target group in photonics are the women. Read the interesting topics here.

Insight Out - Inspiring women in STEM is a career event for women in exact, technical and natural sciences, organized by NWO.
The Insight Out program is divided into 4 themes. Around these themes a program has been composed, which will take place on 4 Mondays in June from 13.00 – 15.00 hours.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions the 2020 edition of the Women in Photonics Lunch had to be held online and was changed to 'Women in Photonics'.
Thanks to Monique Schutten (Te Lintelo Systems), Laura Maddalena (TU Delft), Netsanet Tessema (TU/e) and Joanne Oh (TU/e) for giving their encouraging presentations. Thanks to the participants for the really animated discussion afterwords with them and the speakers. Online can be fun as well!

Also the 4th edition of the Women in Photonics Lunch was a huge succes! A mixture of a female and male audience listened to a very inspiring presentation of Silvia Pont. And, as is part of this formula, we ended with a lively discussion with the audience. Thank you all!

We look back to a very pleasant 3rd Women in Photonics Lunch during the Photonics Event on 19 June. Thanks to the fantastic audience and thanks to Anna Nikiel who gave a quite unexpected presentation 'from heart'.
