Women in Science
February 22 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm
THE MARC U*STAR, QBIC, and NIGMS RISE Programs are excited to presnt our annual Women in Science Seminar!
We will expose attendees to exceptional FIU women in the STEM fields that have pioneered major advancements within our community. This exposure will provide attendees with an opportunity to discuss common struggles women face in male-dominated arenas. The speakers will share their successes as well as the adversities they encountered throughout their journey. We will have a CAPS representative that will address how to handle harassment and discrimination in a university setting.
We hope attendees will be inspired to continue pursuing a career in the sciences while becoming more aware of biases they may face and how to handle them.
Our event will be open to all of FIU. Breakfast refreshments & lunch will be provided.
