Behind every successful woman is a "man"?
SA WISE held the AGM at the Sports Science Centre in Newlands on the 4th of December 2013. Members, family and friends joined us afterwards for a fun and informal discussion.“Behind every great man is a great women” goes the old adage. But is the opposite true? What kind of support is required to succeed as a woman in science, technology, engineering and mathematics? Our panellists discussed their own experiences and opinions. A video of the discussion will be posted soon!
