WINGS should receive funding from the Medical Faculty and LTH!
WINGS (Women IN Great Sciences) is a broad network aimed at women at the Science faculty, Medical faculty, Engineering faculty at Lund University and related industries. We focus on research, career and networking. The members of the network are female scientists that are employed as researchers working in or outside the university. Also, beyond support to the members, WINGS reaches widely across faculties to support career development and develop mentoring programs.
Currently, 60% of our members are from the Medical Faculty and LTH. However, to date we are only funded by the Faculty of Science. Despite several applications and reports sent to the Medical Faculty and LTH, they haven't been willing to support us financially. If we do not receive funding from these faculties soon, we are faced with the unfortunate decision to have to close WINGS to members outside the Science Faculty.
Do you feel it is important to support female researchers in their careers, advocate and promote gender equality? We will hand in this petition as a last-ditch attempt to implore the Medical Faculty and LTH to listen to their own employees.
