Coffee Lectures

The Coffee Lectures were founded in 2018 by Anna Bot to create an environment where anyone would have the possibility to discuss gender equality and equity in a pragmatic and non-polarised way. It was an immediate success: Numbers regularly succeded 80 attendees and the Department of Mathematics decided to support it, too.

The format is as follows: Over lunch, phimale provides some food, coffee, tea and cakes, baked by students who support the event. Afterwards, a professor or an expert is invited to give an input on gender equality and equity; in the past, for example the topics of confidence, the leaky pipeline and the gender gap in mathematics were discussed. After the input, the discussion is opened to all attendees.

Here, you can find the dates and places of our next coffee lecture, or browse through some of our old coffee lectures.
