Women in OR event


The WISDOM Forum is delighted to participate in EURO2021.

WISDOM is a EURO Forum that aims to provide a platform to support, empower and encourage the participation of all genders in Operational Research within EURO. You can find more details here.


Would you like to contribute to the wider EURO community? The WISDOM Forum are conducting a survey to explore the participation in OR (sub-)disciplines by gender, to identify potential challenges to participation, and to create insights into different academic career paths. The survey is open to ALL genders, we wish to understand the career paths of men and women. Your responses will contribute not only to our research, but toward shaping Equality, Diversity and Inclusion within the wider EURO community. We would really appreciate you donating 10 minutes of your time to fill in this survey here."

Round table on “Networking - career progression strategies “
The WISDOM forum invite conference participants to join for a 1.5-hour Roundtable discussion. The objective is to discuss networking as a strategy to help career progression and build personal influence, and to discuss how to manage work-life pressures. Panellists will be invited to discuss their experiences and make suggestions. Panellists will also discuss what they believe are appropriate metrics to measure impact in scientific and technical activities. Prof Julia Bennell (EURO VP2) will moderate the roundtable.

The WISDOM Forum are delighted to welcome panellists:

  • Dr. Frances O'Brien (WISDOM Forum and UK OR Society WORAN),
  • Prof. Ruth Misener (EPSRC Early Career Research Fellow),
  • Dr. Alberto Santini (EUROYoung),
  • Prof. Paolo Toth (former EURO president, and EURO Gold Medal winner),
  • Dr. Giovanni Felici (European Research Council representative)

Introducing YoungWomen4OR
WISDOM launched an exciting initiative in 2020 called YoungWomen4OR. This initiative aims to introduce to our community emerging young women working in OR, either in academia or in the industry. We will hold three sessions during EURO 2021 to introduce these young women and their work. We will be joined by subject expert members of the EURO community to participate in the discussion.
