Reflecting on International Women’s Day 2019 #TalkIWD

Written by Georgi Makin

In this short review, Georgi Makin reflects on #TalkIWD – a Future Science Group Twitter chat hosted on Friday 8 March to commemorate International Women’s Day 2019.

March 8 marks International Women’s Day, an annual day calling for a more gender-balanced world.

This year, Future Science Group aimed to promote conversation around gender equality in STEM with our #TalkIWD Twitter Chat. Joined by a fantastic panel of scientists from all stages of their careers, the chat enabled positive conversation about how we may be able to achieve gender balance in STEM (#BalanceforBetter).

3DMedNet was proud to host Amy Alexander (Mayo Clinic; MN, USA) as our panelist. Amy is a Senior Biomedical Engineer in the Mayo Clinic Department of Radiology’s Anatomic Modeling Lab in Rochester.
