Elizabeth Johnson memorial lecture
Betty Johnson (1936-2003) was a highly respected physicist who worked tirelessly to encourage women into science.
She was instrumental in establishing the Daphne Jackson Trust in 1992. The trust, based in Surrey, implements a fellowship scheme to enable a return to careers in science or engineering through updated knowledge and renewed professional skills. Betty Johnson was awarded an MBE in 2002 in recognition of her services to people returning to careers in science, engineering and technology.
The next lecture will be held in Autumn 2013. Please email email@example.com if you would like to added to the invitation list.
