The Weizmann Women’s Forum in Computer Science and Mathematics includes MSc students, Ph.D. students, postdocs, and faculty members. The main goal of the forum is to strengthen the female community in the department through regular meetings that include soft skills workshops, talks with female role models, industry visits, and various other events and activities.
Our meetings are open to everyone. It is the Weizmann forum FOR women in mathematics, not OF. So long as you support equality and success of all genders, you are more than welcome at our meetings.
