Women in STEM meet US Ambassador

Dr Suzi Gage discusses challenges faced by women in STEM with US Ambassador

On Monday 20th July, Dr Suzi Gage was invited to the US Ambassador's house in Regent's Park along with 15 other women who work in STEM subjects. The Ambassador wanted to discuss the challenges faced by women in STEM, and hopes for the future, in an informal setting over coffee and biscuits, which is why he hosted it at his residence, rather than the Embassy building.

The Ambassador Matthew Barzun described the meeting, which lasted nearly 2 hours, as 'inspiring' on twitter. Suzi said afterwards 'it was a great discussion, and hopefully will be a jumping-off point for some practical advice to help retain and support the talented women who want to be scientists, mathematicians, engineers or in tech'.
