On June 12th the department held a "women in physics event" where the graduate female students invited the bachelor female students to talk eye to eye about the graduate studies and research in the faulty. Such meetings are essential in order to encourage promising female students to continue to graduate studies and increase the number of female researchers in the faculty (while the percentage of female bachelor students in the faculty is about 26, the female graduate students are about 14 percent). The participants gathered in small groups to discuss the nature of graduate studies in physics and answer questions brought up by the students. Professor Kinneret Keren and Professor Yael Shadmi joined the celebration and shared their experience and insight with the participants. "The event was very informative and inspiring", "An enriching experience that allowed us to receive answers to burning questions and meet women physicists in different career stages", "I enjoyed the intimate platform that allowed an eye level discussion" - are only part of the positive feedbacks given by the students!
