New UKFN SIG: Women in Fluid Dynamics UK


We are pleased to announce a new UK Fluids Network Special Interest Group (SIG). Women in Fluid Dynamics UK. Supporting the engagement, retention and progression of women in the fluid dynamics discipline in academia and industry.

There is currently a substantial underrepresentation of women in fluid dynamics at all career stages, and this SIG will provide a space to network, raise the profile of women across the breadth of fluid dynamics, support career development, be a voice for the community and to funders, and ultimately be a platform to enhance wider aspects of diversity in fluid dynamics. An initial meeting with the members below indicated substantial support for the initiative as well as strong need for a national initiative to provide support to early career women in fluids.  


  • Enabling a better pipeline for women in fluids  
  • Facilitating support and mentoring for women in fluids across career stages 
  • Enhancing visibility and connectivity of women in fluids 
  • Supporting the development and progression of women in fluids  
  • Providing a mechanism to raise issues and highlight best practice, and to feedback to the UK fluids community, academic institutions and to UK research funders 

The SIG is open to all who have an interest in furthering the development of women in fluids.  More information on our SIG
