Past Events

Christmas Social and Networking, 07/12/2018 1400 UTC

We warmly welcome you to the WISDOM Christmas Social and Networking event, held at Royal Holloway on December 7th. Speakers will open the event with discussions on diversity in STEM, particularly in Information Security and Mathematics, before attendees have the chance to meet other colleagues over mulled wine and mince pies.

The theme of this event is ‘Community’, highlighting the importance of social support and the value of inclusion within a community. WISDOM has developed its own community over the years and this event is to continue developing the strengths in shared experiences, encouragement and inspiring strengths of our members.

This is not a female only event – all ISG/Maths students and academics are welcome!

Please fill out the Eventbrite if you wish to attend and email if you have particular dietary requirements or any access concerns. Non-alcoholic drinks will be available. Likewise please get in touch if you would like to contribute towards the WISDOM committee or work on particular diversity and inclusion efforts.
