WIQD’s annual symposium “Diversify Yourself!”

The digital Symposium Booklet is available here:

2023 Symposium Program Booklet

WIQD was founded by Stacey Jeffery (CWI) and Julia Cramer (Leiden University). Two quantum scientists who, through WIQD, had the mission to bring together women in quantum in the Netherlands, and beyond, for support, networking, and community growth. Last year’s first annual symposium set a great example! Besides our annual symposium the Organizing Committee organizes monthly and quarterly events, with good turn outs. However, we think it is time for the next step, to get more mature and broaden our horizon. In addition to academics, we also want to reach companies, policy officers and more. Time to diversify! Which is only possible if we do so ourselves. So come to our WIQD’s annual symposium ‘Diversify Yourself!’

Come connect with our WIQD community, listen to interesting keynote speakers talk about topics like quantum science, start-ups, Diversity & Inclusion and personal growth. Also, join our wide range of workshops, but most importantly: get inspired!

We hope to see you then, and keep an eye on our communication channels for more information. Please spread the word, and help us grow the WIQD community.
