Leslie Ann Goldberg wins Suffrage Science award
Posted: 5th October 2016
Leslie Ann Goldberg will be honored at an event on 11 October at Bletchley Park which sees the launch of the MRC Clinical Sciences Centre’s initiative to celebrate women in Maths and Computing. This will be a new development of the Suffrage Science scheme, which aims to encourage women into science, and to reach senior leadership roles.
There are currently two sections of Suffrage Science, one for women in the Life Sciences, and one for those in Engineering and the Physical Sciences. This event launches a specialism for women in Maths and Computing. At the launch, Leslie will be one of 12 women who will receive awards to celebrate their scientific achievements and ability to inspire others.
The awards themselves are science-inspired pieces of jewellery, designed by students at the renowned arts college Central Saint Martins-UAL. After two years, the 12 winners will hand on their jewellery to a recipient of their choice, at another awards ceremony – thus extending the thread of recognition to more women within the Maths and Computing field.
