last modified May 26, 2017 01:05 PM
GDRC's Karly Drabot, Ellen Robertson and Jac Davis organised a one-day conference and workshop with leading academics, professionals, non-profits and students.

The conference was a huge success, taking place at Murray Edwards College with over 90 attendees including 9 speakers. The aim of the conference was to connect, challenge, and inspire by discussing key issues and presenting the latest research in gender equality in STEM. The day's events included a series of talks by experts, skill-building workshops, catered lunch, and networking opportunities. The speakers included the President of Murray Edwards College Dame Barbara Stocking DBE, Professor Michelle Ryan, Dr Jill Armstrong, Johanna M. Lukate and Tapoka Mkandawire. The speakers held workshops, as did the Good Lad Initiative, who held men-only and mixed workshops promoting positive masculinity in the workplace.

Karly Drabot is a co-director of Gates Cambridge Learning for Purpose programme. The conference was generously sponsored by Gates Cambridge, Murray Edwards College and the University of Cambridge Equality & Diversity division.
