In May 2023 Selwyn hosted a discussion about women in science, featuring Dame Athene Donald – former professor of experimental physics in Cambridge, and currently master of Churchill College. Dame Athene has written a book “Not Just for the Boys” which reviews the history and examines the current challenges of women pursuing a career in science; and the conversation, moderated by the master of Selwyn Roger Mosey, went into wider areas including the role of women as leaders in universities and in politics. There were also questions from the audience in the Quarry Whitehouse auditorium.
