We asked women at Warwick to submit an image of themselves for inclusion in the Warwick Women's Montage and a short description of the challenges they've faced/continue to face and how they're dealing with them.

See Idil's submission below:

"2nd year PhD Student HetSys CDT.

I think one of the persistent challenges we face as women, particularly in the STEM field is a general lack of representation. I think it really comes down to women feeling that they are welcome in all sectors. This past year we've seen three great women win the Nobel prize in STEM, which in no doubt is a great leap forward, reassuring us that women's contributions to science can and will be acknowledged, as they should. I have to say that I've been privileged to have had great male and female mentors supporting me in my PhD journey."
