Raise awareness of gender imbalance and ethical concerns,

Identify reasons behind the still existing inequality,

Search for countermeasures, contribute ideas,

Laugh over quick witted repartee, meet congenial individuals,

Inspire female scientists, and inclusively be inspired by others.


Promoting the engagement of women in scientific and technical disciplines with prevailing under-representation of females must now more than ever be considered a priority for a healthier and fair society.

Female and male participants with quite diverse backgrounds coming from all over the world joined our diverse speakers, who shared their experiences, challenges, and successes. The aim of this event was to discuss issues women face when first approaching or already being established in a highly technical field such as Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage (CCUS), to explore underlying and obvious preconceptions that may systematically undermine a person’s confidence and capacity to grow, tarnish the atmosphere in a team, or limit the potentials for collective success.

Breakout rooms offered the opportunity to address the above mentioned topics in more detail, integrating opinions and ideas of the participants, furthering an exchange in mutual respect, building and contributing to the groundwork for a sustainable network supporting women in the field of CCUS. More information about the outcome of the workshop and the given talks will be accessible on this website soon.
