Fundraiser to support NZ women in STEM

A fundraising screening of the fabulous award-winning film ‘Hidden Figures’ will be held in Christchurch on 13 February, 6.00 pm at the Riccarton Hoyts.  Book your tickets now!

This event is a fundraiser to support a New Zealand woman in physical science, engineering or mathematics via a one-off three-year postgraduate scholarship to be administered by the Association for Women in Science (AWIS). A similar event in Auckland recently raised enough for the first two years, and the aim of this event in Christchurch is to generate enough funds to support year three.

You can book your tickets and/or make a donation via Eventbrite.  If you’re unable to attend the event and you’re keen to contribute, please  donate by following the links on the Eventbrite page.

Please share among your networks!  If you haven’t heard about ‘Hidden Figures’ yet, you may enjoy a local review.

This event is supported by the College of Science.
