Women* in Physics Breakfast

as part of the  gender equality program at our faculty, we are organizing the "Women* in Physics Breakfast". Which means that we organize a little breakfast before each Friday colloquium if a woman* gives a talk. Everybody can join this get-together. We want this event to be an opportunity for students, professors, PhD-students and research assistants to get to know the speaker and to network.
