About this event

#ProgressNotPerfection

This year for International Women’s Day, our theme celebrates all kinds of progress - big or small - and the strength we demonstrate when we don’t let fear hold us back from following our dreams.

Our paths aren’t always linear, and we may come across seemingly impossible challenges, but when we celebrate #ProgressNotPerfection, we are celebrating all we’ve accomplished - big and small - and our inner strength and resilience that allowed us to get here.

Special Guests

This year, we have got 3 talks from 4 different speakers who come from various different exciting, inspiring, and awesome backgrounds to tell their story in the industry and celebrate #ProgressNotPerfection:

Aliya Rysbek is a Software Engineer at Google DeepMind, and obtained MSc in Hungary, BSc in Turkey, and is originally from Kyrgyzstan.

Dr. Jo Grundy is a Research Fellow in ‘Machine Learning on Advanced Sensor Array Data’ at the University of Southampton.

Ellica McGregor is a BSc MORSE student and is the founder of ‘LittleFriday’. Grace Lam is an MEng Mechanical Engineering student and is the co-founder of ‘AMRSS’. Both are studying at the University of Southampton and are part of the 2022 Future Worlds Founders Cohort.
