Women in Science

Back to the Topic

Video clip: Helen reminds decision makers in science that women are just as good as men at science and they need to take career gaps into account when employing women.

Do you have any messages for people running departments, science departments?

[Laughter] women are just as good as men, I think most departments know that, they want the best people for the job I suppose the thing that I would say is it can often be quite difficult to judge when a woman say has had a career gap and to recognise their potential give them a chance if you're interviewing, bring them to interview let them show you their potential don't pre-judge.
