The QMUL team: Prof Ursula Martin, Prof Edmund Robinson, Bertille Calinaud, Katja Knecht (MAT / G.Hack), Ann-Louise Anderson (SEMS / WISE@QMUL), Nela Brown (CogSci / G.Hack) and their guests: Steven Brown, Prof Caroline Wardle and Dr Rona Ramsey had a wonderful evening last night at the WISE2013 Award Ceremony!
Nela and Ursula (nominees for Leader Award and Lifetime Achievement Award) had the great honour of meeting all the other incredible nominees as well as shake hands and chat with the amazing HRH The Princess Royal (who is a big supporter of WISE!)
They managed to bring one award ‘home’ (Nela got the Highly Commended WISE Leader Award) and are looking forward to more awards being given to QMUL next year, flagging up the good work female students and members of staff are doing with the invaluable support from their departments !
A BIG THANK YOU goes out to Bertille Calinaud and Peter McOwan for doing all the nomination paperwork and to Prof Ursula Martin (an amazing supporter of WISE@QMUL and G.Hack activities from the very beginning), who miraculously managed to raise funds for a QMUL dedicated table ! What a star !
The Highly Commended WISE Leader Award, was given in the recognition of all the amazing things Nela has managed to achieve with G.Hack, WISE@QMUL and Flossie and a HUGE THANK YOU goes out to all the ladies who supported Nela over the past 3 years and whose dedication and commitment to these projects greatly contributed to this award !
Until next year !
