While there are many issues that are worth tackling, we will start this programme with a focus on helping women with young children. This is not to say that childcare is a women-only issue – but it certainly impacts women more than men. For example, we want to explore how to support childcare arrangements for (international) conference attendance. This is key to quantum R&D and education efforts, as well as to the successful careers of women in the field. Career setbacks resulting from reduced ability to travel don’t only impact the years when they happen, but continue to have repercussions throughout the decades of a woman’s career.
