The coffee lecture of Prof. Mikaela Iacobelli was held on the 18th of December, 2023, on counting on change: transforming perspectives in math academia. She talked about her journey as a female mathematician, discussed fitting in in the male dominated field of mathematics and presented the work she is doing as a member of the Standing Committee of European Women of Mathematics. It was the most visited coffee lecture in phi:male history!
On the 15th November, particle physics researcher Dr. Thea Aarrestad gave a talk on AI in particle physics and how to shine in male dominated fields. Her coffee lecture was extremely encouraging and inspiring to any student planning to become a researcher, as she gave a lot of advice on what it takes and told personal stories on her career trajectory.
Here are some pictures of our past midweek mingles!

The 23rd March is Sexual Harassment Awareness Day. In collaboration with SpeakUp ETH, Phi:male will be taking a stand against sexual harassment by displaying a pin-board in the main hall of HG to raise awareness about sexual harassment. We will post some facts and figures and everyone who wants can contribute by adding their own story in an anonymous way.
The board will be there the whole day, together with a box where you can add your own stories. Every half hour, someone from our team will check on the board and hang the new testimonials, so that everyone who prefers can remain anonymous.
