Women in STEM Book Club

Join the conversation!

First Women in STEM Book Club gathering, January 2019, Lighthouse Bookshop, Edinburgh, UK

After having read a lot of books about women in STEM and related topics for my research and personal interest during this last decade, I came up with the idea of a book club for women who study or work in a STEM environment. My goal is to bring STEM students and professionals together to share knowledge and experiences, network, and of course discuss a relevant book in a friendly atmosphere.
The first book discussed in January 2019, picked by me and the owner of the book shop that accommodated our meetings (Lighthouse Bookshop – Edinburgh, until March 2020), was Inferior by Angela Saini. The event was quickly sold out, which made the interest and need for such a club clear by the women of the local STEM community. It was followed by many successful gatherings that received fantastic feedback! Join us!
