ABSW Women Science Writers' Networking group off to a flying start
Twenty-two women members of the ABSW met in Central London last week for the inaugural women science writers’ networking event.
Emily Wilson, the first woman editor of New Scientist spoke at the event of the highs and lows of her career path that led to the top job at New Scientist. Sue Nelson, science broadcaster, interviewed Emily and Natasha Loder, the Economist summed up the key points.
Key points from the event were:
• There are obstacles to women reaching top jobs
• Women who succeed have often had to find effective means to continue to progress their career whilst balancing child care responsibilities. In Emily’s case job share had been key to her continuing to work.
