Leafs are falling, days are becoming shorter. 2013 is coming to an end. Time for the necessary end-of-the-year reflection. Picture the woods of Wassenaar, a conference room full of inspiring people and interesting speeches, interactive lectures and lively discussions. The LNVH and NIAS warmly invite you to the Fall Symposium 2013: Women in science - Reflecting on progress on 11 December 2013. The perfect place to reflect on the achievements of the past year and to make plans for the following. Join us and go home with input, ideas, energy and inspiration for 2014. End goal: tools for progress in your personal academic career, tools for helping others getting there. All this in order to reach the ultimate goal: a proportionate representation of women within the university community.

Progress is important. Solving problems or addressing issues is one way to speed things up and move forward in your career. A full conference room not always the ideal place to do this in. That is why the coaches and experts present will offer free coaching and/or consultant sessions during the day. Please indicate on the registration form on our website if and why you are interested in a private coaching session on work related matters.   

Participating in this event is free. Registration is closed.  

NIAS is situated in the residential area of “Rijksdorp”, located between the beach and the village of Wassenaar. Transportation to and from the venue will be provided.
