About LivWiSE

Who we are

LivWiSE (Liverpool Women in Science & Engineering) is a initiative by the Faculty of Science and Engineering and Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at the University of Liverpool. We work closely with the University of Liverpool Athena Swan and the Equality and Diversity Networks.

LivWiSE has been created to raise the profile and interaction between women in Engineering and Science and we provide events, opportunities for networking and mentoring; and provide a forum for members to exchange experiences, ideas and contacts.

Members of LivWiSE range in age and experience, from students and academics to alumni and business people who are involved in any aspect of engineering, science or technology.  Membership is open to both women and men who are involved in any aspect of engineering, science or technology. We also welcome corporate members.
