Our second networking event for women in OR

We're now running our second event and this time we're at BMA House, Tavistock Square, London WC1H 9JP.

As well as hearing from some great speakers about hot-topic issues in the profession, you'll be building a better work environment for all women whilst widening your own professional circle.

Come and join us and hear women from all sectors and career stages share their stories of overcoming professional hurdles in a gender-biased industry.

Meet our 2020 Speaker:

Everyone is welcome regardless of gender. Whilst the event is primarily for women in OR, we welcome everyone to join us and support the ORS Women in OR and Analytics Network!

The best solution to one gender imbalance may not come from a forum which creates a different gender imbalance. By including male perspectives and experiences, the conversation is widened, builds awareness and create allies.
