Q2. In #WomenKind @kirstinferguson describes the idea of the @CelebratingWom campaign coming to her while on holiday. With many of us currently on leave, how important is it to take time & space away from work to generate new & bold ideas?

Q3. The subtitle of #WomenKind is “Unlocking the power of women supporting women”. *How* have the networks you have been part of done this most successfully? Is it through targeted programs, sisterhood, advice, something else?

Q4. In #WomenKind @kirstinferguson writes of “ditching the ladder...& throwing down the fishing net” to improve gender inequality. What are the best examples you have seen of this? How can we achieve more of this in STEMM?

Q5. “You can’t be what you can’t see” is a phrase often used to support the promotion of female role models, but can be divisive. Do you find this phrase useful or problematic for #womeninSTEMM ?
