+Going2 people already going


On October 14, 1 PM, a special English-language discussion will be held on the topic of involving women in science, tech, and entrepreneurship.

Which challenges does the academic community face when it comes to broadcasting the successes and achievements of female researchers from around the world? Which tools can we use to effectively communicate with and involve women in a field traditionally reserved for men? Where can those who are fighting against the glass ceiling for women in science, tech, and business find new inspiration? These questions will be discussed by top members of the university’s scientific, academic, and business communities:

Daria Kozlova, First Vice Rector of ITMO University;

Ekaterina Skorb, director and leading professor of the Infochemistry Scientific Center;

Assel Romanova, senior lecturer at ITMO’s Faculty of Software Engineering and Computer Systems, developer at JetBrains Academy, Google Developer Group, Kotlin User Group;

Kseniya Buraya, PhD student at ITMO, ML engineer at Yandex.Maps;

Guest speaker: Wingee Sampaio, head of the Cartier Women’s Initiative.

The event will be broadcast live on the university’s YouTube page.


The livestream will be available to all members of the public.
